Researched by E3161 Victoria Edwards

Royal Roads University’s Board of Governors is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Grundy, PhD, to the position of vice-president (academic) and provost effective April 1, 2011. Grundy began his career at Royal Roads in 1988 when he was hired as a chemistry professor at Royal Roads Military College. In 1995, when the idea for a special-purpose university targeting working professionals was conceived, Grundy was part of the team that established the university’s School of Environment and Sustainability and helped to formulate the vision that would eventually result in the birth of Royal Roads University.

He has since held a succession of research and teaching positions, was dean of the School of Environment and Sustainability, and was acting vice-president (academic) from 2006 to 2007. Prior to his new appointment he was the associate vice-president (program development), chief information officer and registrar.
