Thompson Rivers University’s international division is in a different position to follow up on the TRC’s calls to action than the other faculties and departments. Regardless, TRU World also recognizes that it can play a role in indigenizaton.
This includes supporting sending elders and Indigenous students to participate in a field school in Australia with Northern Arizona University.
TRU World also plans to promote awareness and engagement among new and continuing international students regarding reconciliation and other issues facing Indigenous people, particularly those from the Shuswap and Cariboo areas. This will be achieved through a range of activities to engage international students.
