Each year TRUSU puts on the Common Voices Lecture Series. This event hosts a world-renown speaker, free of charge, which is open to all of our members and the broader community.

Why? – Because learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door.  In fact, some the most important lessons we learn at university come from experiences, and opportunities such as the Common Voices Lecture Series.  From climate change to the financial crisis, from environmental activist David Suzuki to Author Margaret Atwood– we often speak with Common Voices!
