President Steenkamp: The power of giving

We see the power of giving every day at RRU—from the quiet acts of kindness that sustain and define the learning experience, to the extraordinary generosity and vision of donors, community partners, alumni, faculty, associate faculty and staff. You transform the lives that are transforming our world.

That brings me to School of Leadership Assoc. Prof. Cheryl Heykoop who was recently awarded a 2021 Michael Smith Health Research BC Scholar Award. Dr. Heykoop is the first Royal Roads researcher to receive such an honour.

In my video this week, we speak about how her research will advance the specific cancer care needs of adolescents and young adults in BC. Each and every one of us has been touched by cancer so it is especially gratifying to see one of our own here at Royal Roads doing such vital work.
