Royal Roads is a vibrant, robust and relevant community of people taking knowledge and experience and turning it into opportunity. Our university and the military colleges which preceded it have a proud history of providing a transformative educational experience: Royal Roads graduates apply their learning to bring positive change to their work, lives and communities.
In 2015 we will celebrate a combined legacy of 75 years of learning and leadership at Royal Roads: 55 years as a military college, beginning with the establishment of HMCS Royal Roads, and 20 years as an applied research public university, responsive to labour market demands.
Our alumni tell us their experience at Royal Roads was life changing. Unfortunately, for some students, the financial implications of post-secondary education can be a significant barrier to starting or even completing their educational journey. Your donation can help students overcome these financial challenges and create avenues and opportunities for success.
