Statement

As we celebrate 50 years of teaching at TRU, we must look forward with an eye to inspiring ourselves and, as a result, inspiring students to reach even higher peaks. "Inspiration: Fire On The Mountain" presents practical ways to raise that inspiration in ourselves as educators and in our students. With a more inspired student and a more inspired instructor, the learning environment becomes a place of magical possibilities, a place of passion, a place of fire... on the mountain.
