Our Diversity Statement:
Diversity is the recognition and acknowledgement of multiple and overlapping identities. These identities include but are not limited to: race, ethnicity, culture, nationality, linguistic origin, citizenship, colour, ancestry, place of origin, creed (religion, faith, spirituality), family status, marital status, ability or disability, sex, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, education, style, socio-economic class, and political belief.
Diversity enriches community. Royal Roads University is committed to appreciating and celebrating the diversity of students, faculty, and staff. We strive to increase understanding and acceptance of each other, thereby making us more compassionate human beings and strengthening the fabric of our communities.
Diversity Statement Consultation
In 2011, a group of students, faculty, and staff led the development of the Royal Roads University Diversity Statement, which was endorsed by the Board of Governors on October 25, 2011. Following this, the Diversity Action Group (DAG) was established to help bring the Diversity Statement to life.
DAG is currently facilitating a review of RRU Diversity Statement. During the summer months, feedback about the statement was gathered at a variety of on-campus events and through two online Padlet forums. That feedback has now been incorporated into a draft version of a revised statement.
We invite you to review this draft and to email your feedback to the Diversity Action Group by Nov. 14, 2018.
