Vice-President, Academic & Provost

Royal Roads University

Located in one of Canada’s most beautiful National Historic Sites, Royal Roads University (RRU) has a history of excellence providing life changing experiences that enable professional and personal transformation. Distinct among Canadian institutions for its academic programs and educational philosophy, RRU’s mandate is to offer undergraduate and graduate education in applied and professional areas, with a primary focus on providing continuous learning opportunities for working professionals who can prosper and contribute meaningfully in our complex and dynamic world. Many programs are offered at the master’s and doctoral levels. This is an exciting time for Royal Roads University as it undergoes major transformational change, including envisioning its expansion and development of an undergraduate campus.

Reporting to the President, the Vice-President, Academic and Provost (VPA) serves as the chief academic officer and is a key member of the executive team. The VPA has lead responsibility for the development and implementation of academic programs, academic and student support services, academic quality assurance, faculty appointments and faculty relations and academic administrative appointments.

The ideal candidate will be a visionary and globally minded leader, who brings experience as an outstanding teacher and researcher and who will respect and thrive in RRU’s collegial culture. A natural tendency of inclusivity, accountability, consultation and transparency is critical for success. With strong interpersonal and communication skills, an inclusive and principled approach to leadership and respect for diversity, the successful candidate will be a proven relationship and community builder. An earned doctorate and experience as a department chair or dean is expected.

Royal Roads University is strongly committed to fostering diversity within its community, welcoming those who would contribute to the further diversification of faculty and staff including, but not limited to, women, visible minorities, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.

The University welcomes applications from those who will contribute to the diversity of its community. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
