Royal Roads receives $5-million gift

A $5-million dollar gift given to Royal Roads University is being called the largest in the school's history.
 
The donation comes from international educator Dr. Sherman Jen, who developed a Chinese educational system that blends the Chinese model with that of Canada.
 
After opening his first school in 1995, Dr. Jen's system  has since been implemented at 39 schools throughout China.
 
Royal Roads president Allan Cahoon says the $5-million dollar gift will support the creation of an on-campus centre promoting global understanding through education.
