Graduate Research Symposium

TRU graduate students are passionate about their research, and eager to share their knowledge with the campus community. The Graduate Research Symposium, held during Research Week on March 30, is designed to develop interdisciplinary collaborations within TRU’s graduate programs and promote a vibrant graduate school culture.

Now in its second year, the event is coordinated by Graduate Student Research Mentors, and features poster presentations and lectures. This is a great opportunity to network with faculty and students across disciplines.
