TRU, TOTA partner to support tourism students


Thompson Rivers University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) to support tourism students through a variety of initiatives. This partnership will provide tourism students with learning resources, industry mentorship, and referrals; TOTA will also support TRU’s Tourism Innovation Lab and provide funding for an annual scholarship for the top academic student in TRU’s Bachelor of Tourism Management Program. “Our partnership with TOTA ensures students have access to resources that are current and reflect the state of the industry today,” said TRU Tourism Innovation Lab Director David Carter.
