Return to Campus Plan
Plans for fall 2021 course delivery
TRU is looking forward as students return to campus in September 2021. While not all programs will return fully, most courses and programs are going back. We will accommodate pandemic restrictions on our campuses.
TRU’s priority is the safety of the TRU community, and the success of our students. The adjustments we have made to course delivery have impacted our students’ learning experiences and some students are succeeding while others are struggling.
Our Return to Campus Fall 2021 plan explores program delivery in classrooms, labs, seminars, experiential learning and research, and is based on best knowledge in the field as well as consultations with students, faculty and staff. We are working with provincial officials to ensure we meet BC’s Go-Forward Guidelines while offering students flexible and leading-edge learning opportunities that align with their learning preferences.
Details about what Return to Campus Fall 2021 at TRU will look like — including which courses will be face-to-face, what services will be available, how they will be accessed, etc. — will be added to this page as the plan rolls out, so please be patient and check back for more details. We also encourage you to connect with us on social media channels for updates.
Framework and time line
We have created a framework that allows us to consider all aspects of the system affected by a return to campus in fall 2021. The project team determined the scope of this project and the inter-university partnerships needed to successfully plan to deliver our programs with and without COVID-19 restrictions.
