The Student Governing Board is a policy-making Board of Directors, responsible for directing the SAMRU mission and vision. Governors are elected or appointed from and by SAMRU members (i.e., students).

The volunteer time commitment is minimal at 10 – 12 hours per month. You will be required to participate in additional committees that feed results up to the Student Governing Board for refining and approval. Governors receive honoraria for work groups (not for board or committee work), but the real reward is a deeper understanding of board governance—a complex yet integral form of leadership.

If you’d like to get involved but you aren’t sure you have the experience, don’t worry: we’ll provide all the training you’ll need to be successful.
