Royal Roads University chancellor has long history with the school

Richard Watts

Victoria business leader and new Royal Roads Chancellor Wayne Strandlund recalls his early memories of visiting the university's campus in a profile story in the Times Colonist.

"I guess you could say Royal Roads has been in my system, in my blood for a very long time," he says.

The founder, director and chief executive of Fisgard Capital Corp. says he is humbled and honoured by his appointment as chancellor. Strandlund has served on the Royal Roads board of governors since 2011. He says the position is not ceremonial. 

“It is not a passive position,” says Strandlund. “The board of governors is very active. There is a lot of work that goes on and I enjoy it.”
