Envision TRU

Thank you to all who have participated in the eight-month public consultation (Phases 1 and 2) of Envision TRU!

In November we invited people to volunteer for two working sessions:

  • Nov. 14: to discuss what makes a good vision, values and strategic goals.
  • Nov. 25: to discuss possible directions for a new TRU vision, values and strategic goals based on a Final Report of Findings prepared by Integrated Planning and Effectiveness.

We are now transitioning from Phase 3 to Phase 4. During this period, President Brett Fairbairn will be progressing through a drafting process for a new TRU vision, values and strategic goals.

The president’s drafting process includes periodic discussions with the senior executive, engaging a small team of writers for thoughtful guidance on phrasing, word choices and writing style, and reaching out to a variety of people to get their quick reactions to possible options for a new vision, values or strategic goals. Most of these steps will occur before the holiday break. Based on these forms of input, further fine-tuning will take place in the new year with the goal of presenting the final version to Senate and the Board of Governors in February and March 2020 for their endorsement and approval.

As always, updates will be posted to this website.

Thank you for your support of Envision TRU.
