April 1, 2019

Thompson Rivers University’s Career and Experiential Learning department has been granted Co-operative Education Accreditation by Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada. According to Chair and BBA Co-operative Education Coordinator Shawn Read, accreditation means that a program meets national standards, enabling it to expand opportunities for students and to apply for provincial and federal funding. A TRU release states that the department is pushing forward with renewed “vigour and forethought.” “We are a small but mighty department, and it never ceases to impress me what we can achieve,” added Read. TRU (BC)
