Institutional Learning Outcomes
TRU is dedicated to preparing students to succeed in their future careers and address the social, environmental and ethical challenges of today and tomorrow.
Beginning in Fall 2021, first year students will enter baccalaureate programs that incorporate eight Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILO) into the overall program of study. These ILOs ensure students will graduate with a well-rounded base of knowledge in a variety of areas, in addition to the specialized knowledge they acquire in their degree.
For more information, please visit individual program pages or speak with an academic advisor. Students who have declared a major can also use DegreeWorks to plan their courses.
