Staff, faculty, and students are involved in sustainability actions – right across
the campus.
— Lynn Joly, Associate Vice President, Human Resources
Sustainability engagement as a group concept has been present at Royal Roads since the sustainability advocacy group Campus Green (2009-10) and the Student Sustainability Committee (SSC). Alongside the Royal Roads University Student Association (RRUSA) and Student Services, the Of ce of Sustainability supports the SSC in organizing many green-focused events and in increasing student sustainability ambassadorship.
Further, Continuing Studies at Royal Roads offers over 300 courses that connect the university to the community to enhance personal growth and provide broader perspectives on how we can live and work together toward a more sustainable future.
The Of ce of Sustainability regularly posts Royal Roads sustainability related news and initiatives on Crossroads. A number of articles featuring success
in sustainability at Royal Roads and within the local community have appeared in the Goldstream Gazette, the Times Colonist, the Green Scene and on several social media outlets and websites.
Recently, the pro le of sustainability initiatives on campus has been raised in student orientation for
our academic programs and as part of orientation
for all new employees. Such engagement activities, opportunities and stories align with the results of
the 2014 Royal Roads Cultural Values Assessment (CVA). The Of ce of Sustainability plans to increase employee and student engagement, provide continuity across school terms and encourage culturally diverse perspectives about nature and sustainability.
