MEDIA REPORTS OF DEATH GREATLY EXAGGERATED
KAMLOOPS - TRU is now denying earlier media reports that Accolades restaurant at TRU is slated to close.
“There has been no decision to close Accolades," says spokesperson Diana Skoglund.
She says budgetary constraints have prompted discussions about changes to the Culinary Arts program at the university including Accolades fine dining restaurant but no decisions have been made—at least yet.
“There’s some challenges with our budget… they’re going to look at it,” Skoglund said. “There’s various options. If that’s one of the options they look at, that might happen.”
Skoglund would not disclose other avenues the university is considering.
“I don’t think we want to talk about specifics right now because there’s a whole semester to talk about it,” she said. “It’s a discussion.”
“There’s still weeks, months before final discussions are made.”
