Indigenous Student Services
TRU has one of the largest Indigenous student populations of BC post-secondary institutions. We offer services to support all Indigenous students, Status, Non-status, Metis and Inuit. These services are designed to enhance students' post-secondary experience at TRU culturally, socially and academically.
The Indigenous services coordinator provides support services and assists Indigenous students in achieving student success. She acts as a liaison with bands, communities and local agencies.
Indigenous Education Resources
At TRU you will find small class sizes, personal attention and practical learning experiences in every program — all on a beautiful campus located in Williams Lake. We are committed to creating an environment that encourages students to develop a network of supports and friendships.
TRU offers a variety of services that support students through their social, personal, and academic experiences. This support is accessible to all students and it is often the key to their success. We invite and encourage students to take advantage of these services and visit The Gathering Place.
For details on services available contact Kristen Johnny, Indigenous Student Services Coordinator.
Kristen provides general information on admissions and educational program options at TRU and communicates with support services, academic advisors, bands and high school coordinators for Williams Lake students.
