About You

I have a story idea

I have an idea that might be good for social media, newsroom story or video.

TRU is teeming with stories. Sometimes they can be told with a social media post, with a great photo and brief description, with a longer newsroom story and/or in a video. Please read the information below and fill in the form so we can review your request. We can’t get to all stories, but we will do our best.

What is a story? It should:

  • Have impact. Who does it affect? How many people are involved? Is this story quirky, does it provide new information or insights?
  • Appeal to a wide audience. Who is interested — is there wide interest and, if so, how far? How many people would be interested in this information and why? Would retired grandparents living in downtown Kamloops care? What about someone in Vancouver?
  • Build TRU’s reputation/pride. Is the story about intriguing research, accomplishments (of students, faculty or staff), something unusual, is it inspirational, something that’s new or a first of its kind, of human interest or has a surprising twist?

Tell us your suggestion with as many details as you can:

I have a program information session

Program Information Session Request:

  • Timeline. At least five weeks lead time is required to set up and promote a program info session.
