If you are a TRU faculty member, please apply for inclusion in our Experts List.Register or update your profile
Each year, Thompson Rivers University receives calls from web, print, television, and radio journalists in BC and from across Canada seeking expertise on a wide range of issues.
What journalists seek, and what TRU can offer, is factual information and informed interpretation, analysis and commentary on a wide range of complex issues impacting local, national and international conversations. Having an expert comment on a story leads to more accurate and informed coverage.
The new TRU Experts List is an online information source that provides quick and direct access to TRU's expertise. This tool can also be used by potential graduate students to locate supervisors with relevant research expertise, as well as potential community and industry research partners.
Being on this list shouldn't result in a flood of calls, but it is a service that reporters appreciate. There is also no obligation to respond to every request from the media, and your details can be removed or updated at any point.
Our signup form is online and only takes a few minutes to complete. Your entry will provide details of your research interests and expertise, a short profile, links to your website and social media accounts and recent media work, as well as a photograph and any video clips highlighting your work.
If you haven't worked with media in the past, we can give you advice on how to prepare for interviews. If you require an updated photograph, we can help you with that as well.
Thank you in advance for participating in this important knowledge mobilization initiative. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out.
