President Steenkamp: Royal Roads celebrates Asian Heritage Month

Happy Asian Heritage Month! I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the integral role that people of Asian descent have played in the development of the grounds where our university now resides. And today our university community is enriched by the dynamic contributions of Asian students, alumni, faculty and staff.

To help kick off the month, intercultural communication expert, Prof. Juana Du, joined me for what I thought was an inspiring and artistic talk about understanding and collaboration across cultures. I thought her metaphor of a harmonious symphony to be particularly poignant.

Visit our Asian Heritage Month webpage for more videos, voices and stories, which will be updated throughout the month. Check back to stay up to date on upcoming RRU and community events and find educational resources including a link to the Library’s digital display.
