Open Governance Initiative

TRU's Open Governance Initiative was announced on July 14, 2016.

As part of the Open Governance Initiative, the members of the Board of Governors, the Senate, and the Planning Council for Open Learning agreed to an annual three-way joint meeting in the winter term to discuss their mutual roles as governance bodies, to discover helpful shared involvement, and to develop a deeper understanding of TRU’s unique tricameral governance structure.

This joint meeting is live-streamed to the community, as are all public meetings of the Board of Governors, the Senate and the Planning Council for Open Learning.
