Remembering Sri Lanka

Today, many at Thompson Rivers University are still trying to process the shocking news of the bombings in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. As a university, we welcome and are enriched by students, staff, and faculty who come here from all over the world.  We hold firm to our values of diversity and intercultural understanding to foster an inclusive world without hate.

I want to confirm that no TRU students, faculty or staff are currently in Sri Lanka and that TRU World will be reaching out to students from Sri Lanka to extend support. We also offer services that may be helpful to anyone at difficult times and I encourage all to take advantage of them as needed.

  • For students, in Kamloops counselling is available through the Faculty of Student Development by dropping in at OM 1631. In Williams Lake, counselling services can be arranged by contacting the Admissions Office.
  • For faculty and staff, counselling is available through the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EAP). Details are available on HR's site on OneTRU.

We will continue to move forward together, as a community, committed to equity and inclusion for everyone.

President and Vice-Chancellor
