TRU recognizes students' international experience on transcript

June 28, 2010

Thompson Rivers University has introduced a new Global Competency distinction that will become part of the official transcript of graduating students, formally recognizing international skills and experience that students acquire during their time at TRU. Eligible qualifying categories include foreign language study or other course work with a distinct cross-cultural or international focus, and participation in student exchange programs, field schools, and international volunteer opportunities. TRU says the Global Competency qualification reflects both its commitment to global citizenship and capacity to establish university-wide internationalization initiatives. TRU News
