Diversity at Royal Roads University

Diversity

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. We greatly appreciate the feedback that we have received from students, faculty and staff throughout all stages of the community consultation. That feedback has been incorporated into a revised statement. We are in the last stages of finalization and look forward to sharing the revised statement with you in the new year.
