TRU receives accreditation from NWCCU

July 12, 2019

Thompson Rivers University has received accreditation status through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. NWCCU is an independent, non-profit agency based in Washington that evaluates institutions through an assessment of institutional quality. "Accreditation provides our students, our faculty and staff, and the communities we serve, with the acknowledgement that a TRU education is a high-quality education and that everyone involved in the delivery of this education is committed to the best outcome for our students," said TRU President Brett Fairbairn. TRU states that it is the third institution in the province to be accredited by NWCCU after Simon Fraser University and Capilano University, and the first to achieve accreditation in less than three years.
