  • 31. 7.0 Research Applied research plays a significant role at Royal Roads. Projects range from studies into the viability of non-timber forest products in mountain pine beetle-infested areas of B.C., and research into the origin and effect of persistent organic pollutants in the Pacific coast ecosystem, to the investigation of a learning model to support the use of e-learning technology for governance training in a remote aboriginal community, and from research regarding the development of leadership frameworks for the public and health sectors, to international research that engages practitioners in developing an effective paradigm to support democratization and good governance in fragile, failed and failing states. By focusing on solving real-world issues, concerns and problems, the university’s applied research activities provide the critical link between advancing knowledge and the learning provided to Royal Roads’ students. Through the work of Dr. Ann Dale, Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Community Development, RRU is also helping communities participate in a rich dialogue on sustainability issues and capitalizing on a decade of successful experience in developing and experimenting with new ways of learning. RRU’s applied research attracts funding from international agencies, government, foundations, and business. The university is home to two dynamic centres. The Centre for Health Leadership and Research builds on RRU’s extensive experience in leadership studies for health care leaders, senior administrators and practitioners in hospitals, regional health authorities, government, and other policy and research agencies. The Centre for Non-Timber Resources supports sustainable utilization of non-timber forest resources in the temperate and boreal regions of the world. The principal focus of the centre is the wise use of non-timber forest resources to diversify and sustain rural and resource-dependent economies. The Todd Thomas Institute for Values-Based Leadership will add to the leadership and organizational research at RRU by exploring the theory and practice of value-based leadership. 29 Royal Roads UniveRsit y
