Royal Roads University is set to officially open its new Centre for Environmental Science and International Partnership. The Victoria Times Colonist reports that the $24.8M facility features state-of-the-art laboratories, IT-enabled classrooms with cloud technology, and an outdoor classroom with all-weather seating. “Each classroom will also have the IT capability to host and participate in livestream online video conferencing to interact with students in other classrooms or even other institutions, locally, nationally or internationally,” stated Senior Portfolio Director Carolyn Levesque. The Time Colonist adds that the facility was funded by the provincial and federal governments, philanthropist Sherman Jen, and the university.
