TWU Access is the new multi-access student experience.
Throughout the global pandemic, we have remained committed to the individual needs and well-being of our students. Accordingly, if a student is unable to begin classes face-to-face this Fall, we remain committed to providing them with access to TWU’s high-quality education through online and remote learning options.
Our community is one of the key features that make the TWU experience unique. We’ve made it a priority to find ways to offer our student ministries, major events, Recreation Services, and more in both an online and in-person format.
In light of Canada West and U SPORTS cancellation of the 2020-21 season for men's and women's basketball, volleyball, hockey, and women's rugby 7s, we invite our student-athletes to take advantage of this new season to develop the on-field and off-field skills necessary for great performance and competition. Trinity Western University has already continued to compete in a variety exhibition contests, while ensuring that provincial health and safety measures are met. TWU Athletics Director Jeff Gamache says, “We will embrace the challenge, and I truly believe we will have a training environment with as many exhibition games as possible that, when coupled with our Complete Champion Approach™, will produce a year that will be remembered for all that it was, not all that it was not.”
Courses & Academic Support
To ensure the well-being of our students, staff, and faculty amidst this pandemic, we are diligently following the guidance of Fraser and Vancouver Coastal Health and are implementing health and safety measures for the use of classrooms and labs. Our campuses are open, and some of our experiential courses are taught face-to-face according to health and safety protocols. Due to the need for distance and restricted gatherings, the majority of our classes are offered in an online format. For our Richmond students, the majority of coursework is online, with some face-to-face components such as learning labs and special lecture series offered on site. Advisors are working with each student to create a study plan that will work for each student’s situation and location.
Each of our deans has prepared a video explaining what fall looks like for their school or faculty. Watch below.
