The Cultures of MRU event series is back!
For the second year in a row, we invite you to join us for a celebration of the wealth of diversity that makes Mount Royal’s campus so vibrant. This will be a week of films, food, dance, and music on a range of subjects: everything from addressing racism to decoding Mayan hieroglyphs.
