    Biographical history

    In 1994 the Federal Government announced the impending closure of Royal Roads Military College. In Jan.1995, Dan Miller, B.C. Minister of Skills, Training and Labour, established an advisory panel on Royal Roads to assess proposals for its future. David Strong appointed Trevor Matthews as Special Advisor to the President to oversee the production of the "Proposal from the University of Victoria to the Advisory Panel on the Future of Royal Roads." After the rejection of the UVic proposal, Matthews continued as coordinator for The Royal Roads Implementation Group in the transition to Royal Roads University.
