TRU officials investigating 'safety concerns'
Officials at Thompson Rivers University are busy this afternoon (April 19) assessing the scope and nature of a "safety concern" which has forced the postponement of an annual graduation art show.
"We're doing an assessment on it right now," said Christopher Seguin, TRU's vice-president advancement.
"We're trying to get a handle on it."
The safety concern is believed to revolve around threats being made between students in TRU's Visual Arts program.
Seguin would only say officials have received expressions of concern from students about their safety relating to the show.
"We wish to properly investigate these concerns prior to proceeding with the show," he said.
The university's Faculty of Arts was slated to hold its annual Visual Arts program exhibition, at which graduating students are provided a platform to showcase their work, on Friday, April 20.
It's been postponed indefinitely, but officials hope to stage the show later this spring.
