Research & Graduate Studies
Collaborative. Creative. Innovative.
Research at TRU is making a difference. Many of our most important research discoveries stem from community-based research questions that result in real-life solutions with immediate and far-reaching impact. They influence policy, enrich culture, improve programs and build more vibrant cities. Our faculty are engaged in training the next generation of world-class researchers at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
TRU is one of the province’s leading research universities, and is a proud member of the Research Universities Council of British Columbia.
