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 seeking input from the RRU community on the Diversity Statement and diversity-related activities and initiatives. Input will be collected in-person at pop-up feedback stations and RRU events in June and July and online through Padlet, a virtual whiteboard.
Padlet allows participants to anonymously provide feedback through text, images, or files; users can also like or comment each other’s posts. To add a new note, double click anywhere on the Padlet or click on someone else’s note to add a comment. Please provide your feedback and/or comments in the following virtual whiteboards:
