TRUe Moonshot

 What goes on in most university classrooms is the transfer of knowledge from the textbook and the instructor to the students. The heart of most educational experiences in the traditional classroom includes knowing how to inform;  knowing how to ‘transfer knowledge’; knowing how to train skills. … TRU is a transformational educational mission driven enterprise.

TRU POPULI

TRU Partners and Populi provide inspiration and insight to accelerate research in our Impact labs. Our populi’s deep engagement globally means TRU is an activated, distributed network of ecosystems.

Student Center

In the early 21st century, information is ubiquitous and immediately referenceable, TRU recognizes that the role of the university as society’s keeper of information has changed. At the same time, the volume of data and information being generated by humanity continues to grow exponentially that new tools for analysis in virtually every field have become essential. Traditional disciplines have converged and splintered into new areas of study at an unprecedented rate, and the integration of digital tools for data analysis has altered the landscape of every academic department.

Partner Services

To support Purpose Learning, a series of University and Corporate Partnerships across the globe are TRU Impact Labs. TRU faculty and scholars tackle global challenges through immersion. Impact Labs should result in long-term impact on society’s human capital development.TRU has partnered with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) to impact 1.3 Billion people in Africa. Much like the Olympics, which attracted the world’s best athletes to come together and push the boundaries of human endurance, speed, and physical prowess, Impact Labs have become the academic analogue.  Over the next  year, TRU X Impact Labs should attract the top faculty from not only NUST, but from institutions around the world to come together for in-context research and application.

Personal Help

TRU takes scholars deep into a content area with a singular focusd during ELEVATE. In this phase, intellectual rigor is paramount. scholars enter the Elevation phase by coordinating with their self-selected personal Board of Advisors (BOA). Composed of academic and personal mentors, as well as more advanced scholars and trusted confidantes. Elevation holds a special place in the hearts of both faculty and scholars. When TRU reimagined the brick and mortar model and created the Virtual Reality Designership School on the Engage Platform by Immersive VR Education, Elevation-specific research and learning quarters were created. In the TRU tradition, these quickly became referred to as  “X@TRU”. The new hybrid environments are lauded for their ability to foster meaningful relationships between professors and scholars. Those relationships contribute to the accelerated achievement, often equivalent to a pre-2019 PhD, that scholars reach in just 12-24 months.
