In 2017, the TRU Faculty Association will be introducing several new initiatives to improve communications and faculty engagement.
Introducing ARKADEMIC — An exciting new social media platform designed specifically for academics.
Arkademic is a new and different social media platform that was created with the unique needs and concerns of 21st century academics.
Arkademic offers customization specific to the needs of faculty–develop working groups by research interest, professional membership or department affiliation, share research findings or news items from your field and easily contact colleagues–coupled with the kind of 21st century data protection that academics need. All of your information, your likes and shares, are kept on our secure servers…not your institution’s.
New Governance Videos
Keep an eye out for our new short videos on governance, hosted by TRUFA Vice-President, Star Mahara.
With these videos we hope to address your many question about governance issues at TRU in short, easily viewable video clips.
Contract Faculty Handbook
Now that the final Collective Agreement has been released, TRUFA has completed our Contract Faculty Handbook designed specifically for Sessional, Continuing Sessional and Limited Term Faculty Members. You can find the online version on our website here and look for the hard copy version on TRUFA bulletin boards across campus in January.
