Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at RRU

Guiding Principles:

Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives carry great value for individuals, the University, and the future. Universities as cultural change institutions, with mandates of their research, teaching, and community engagement, are uniquely positioned to affect national and international conversations. This is the place where tomorrow’s influential professionals are trained and educated. These graduates will be change agents.

Organizational commitment:

Royal Roads University (RRU) is committed to providing opportunities and venues to foster intersectional understanding and connection; being a catalyst for EDI; and recognizing that at RRU, Everyone Counts.

Moving forward together: 

In the spirit of collaboration, RRU employees were invited to attend information sessions conducted by Human Resources in March and April of 2019. These conversations began the University-wide EDI initiative. The sessions attracted 242 employees representing our exempt, CUPE, and RRUFA employee groups. During the presentations, RRU’s commitment to EDI was confirmed and the specific details of the EDI survey were revealed, which generated some great conversations. The feedback on the survey and overall process that we received during the eight sessions has been readily incorporated and is reflective of the iterative and collaborative nature of this important work.
