Celebrating exceptional community members

Each year, Royal Roads University celebrates and recognizes exceptional people and organizations with two honours.

The Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, is the university’s highest honour. It's awarded to individuals who reflect Royal Roads University's vision and values, and have achieved a significant record of success and community service.

The Chancellor's Community Recognition Award honours recipients who are connected to Royal Roads University and have made significant contributions to their communities.
