Office of the President

Dr. Philip Steenkamp

Hello! Hay'sxw'qa si'em! 

I am deeply honoured to join this community of lifelong learners. I have always been impressed by Royal Roads University's innovative model of post-secondary education for students and scholar-practitioners engaged at the leading edge of 21st-century learning.

I want to hear and understand what Royal Roads means to you — those of you whose lives are shaped by their experience here, and also those in the West Shore, the Capital Region and global communities. As we embark on the university’s next phase I invite you to reach out to me at any time on any issue. I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

— Dr. Philip Steenkamp, president and vice-chancellor
