A great way of getting to know your fellow MRU students and giving back to the vibrant campus community you’ve come to know and love is to volunteer with SAMRU! Volunteering has many benefits; not only will you get to know a wide range of other students and professionals in an area of interest, but it can also offer the chance to put what you’re studying into action, offer a great resume-addition, give you access to free training and development opportunities, and give you a great sense of accomplishment!


SAMRU is a great ‘safe space’ for various ideas and perspectives, and a friendly and welcoming place for MRU students to connect with their peers.


We’ve found over the years that certain programs and fields of study really connect well with some of our Service Centres which offer volunteer opportunities. All of our centres are currently recruiting new volunteers (as well as welcoming back returning volunteers too!) Keep reading!
