We are a university community responding

to the global refugee crisis.


The Trinity Refugee Awareness Campaign (TRAC) is a student-led initiative that was launched in February 2017 at Trinity Western University (TWU). The purpose of TRAC is to raise awareness and provide opportunities for action to all demographics of the university and its surrounding community. We believe that the diverse TWU family, with our broad spectrum of specialties and capabilities, provides a unique potential to respond to the global refugee crisis. 

TRAC has two components: First, TRAC is partnering with local sponsorship groups and organizations that work with refugees. Through these partnerships, volunteer opportunities are provided for TWU students. Second, TRAC is committed to engaging in a variety of projects to incorporate other members of the TWU community. 

Thank you for joining us in our mission to restore hope.
