Focus on Governance—Processes & Structures
How do the governance structures and processes at TRU work? How and when were they created? In our second video, TRU Faculty Association Vice-President, Star Mahara, introduces the structures and processes of academic governance at TRU.
When TRU became a university in 2005, the structures and processes of academic governance at TRU were enshrined in law by the government of British Columbia. The UNIVERSITY ACT and the TRU ACT clearly define the roles and duties of each level of governance at our university. Any deviation would not only be a breach of governance best practises but of the law as well.

Learn how to ensure that our legally mandated governance systems operate correctly so that we, as faculty members, can have our voices heard.
