CRC equity, diversity and inclusion at RRU

This section of the Royal Roads University (RRU) research site fulfils the requirements for compliance with the public accountability and transparency requirements set out by the Canada Research Chairs (CRC) program. The principles within this page, the EDI action plan, and the RRU accountability and transparency page are in accord with the RRU diversity statement.

The four federally designated groups (FDGs) as set out by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS) are: women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities. RRU’s equity targets and gaps for each of the FDGs are fewer than 5, and have therefore been withheld to protect the privacy of the chairholders. RRU currently has five allocations, four of which have been filled and one that is currently unfilled. The filled chairs are held by:

Dr. Brian Belcher, CRC in Sustainability Research Effectiveness
Term start: 04-30-2013
Term end: 03-31-2020
