TRU Social Work Students need your help to complete research projects.

Two TRU students are doing summer research projects and need your support. One project focuses on current or former TRU students who identify as low-income during their studies and their experiences with university support services and another asking BC rural social workers about sexual assault services and how COVID-19 has affected the service delivery. If you or someone you know meet the criteria for one or both projects please contact student researchers. Please also consider sharing information about projects with others so students can complete data collection before the end of August.
