But they can also lead to healthier communities as walkable cities encourage people to travel by foot or bicycle.
Currently on research leave from the University of Alberta, Dr. Daryl McCartney will be a Visiting Professor in the School of Environment and Sustainability at Royal Roads University (RRU) from January to August 2019. Dr. McCartney’s general interests align well with those of RRU, namely, sustainability, environmental assessment, and waste management.
I am delighted to serve as the Director of our school as of March 3, 2019 for the next two years. We are at a good crossroads for the school, thanks to my predecessor, Dr. Chris Ling. We now live in a beautiful new building, the Sherman Jen Building across from the gym. Please do come and visit us.
We are pleased to announce the opening of our Sustainable Communities: Making a Difference exhibit in Showcase, the Library’s space for promoting Royal Roads' innovative, applicable, and real-world research. The exhibit will run from Monday, Jan. 21 to Sunday, March 31, 2019.
