The Allan Cahoon Global Advancement and Diversity Award has been established as a result of a gift by the Royal Roads Board of Governors to assist Royal Roads students in underrepresented populations who wish to promote diversity.

Global advancement refers to the university’s strategic and integrated approach to its efforts in support of the vision to “connect people, ideas and experiences to change lives and the world”.
