Fall 2006 Convocation

Royal Roads pays tribute to three leaders at the national, provincial and local levels, in addition to hundreds of graduates

Friday, November 3, 2006

Royal Roads University paid tribute to three leaders at the national, provincial and local levels, in addition to 940 graduating learners, on Nov. 3. The three distinguished honourees represent notable achievements in the Canadian television broadcast industry, education, politics and governance, and community outreach in Victoria.

Acting President and Chancellor of Royal Roads University, Bob Skene, said the exemplary leadership qualities of all three recipients reflect the university’s principles and values.

 “All three of these individuals, in their own unique ways, bring us great honour and are fine examples for our learners of how leadership, dedication and vision can be applied to improve society,” said Skene.

This conovcation marked marks the first time Canadian learners have graduated from a program without ever having set foot on the Victoria campus, when an Alberta cohort of  25 learners graduate from the Master of Arts in Leadership and Training after having completed all their coursework online and their residencies in their home province.
