How we support broader advocacy efforts:
Students with broader advocacy needs may be referred to a specific member of the Representation Executive Council (REC) for advocacy efforts focused on broader topics which could benefit from internal and or external advocacy efforts. Members of REC advocate internally on various MRU committees and councils for future institutional policy or procedural changes, with the intent on improving systems and circumstances for future MRU students. Check out how their external advocacy works to improve the lives of MRU students here.
The Student Advocacy Resource Centre also tracks the kinds of issues that individual students see our office about, identifying larger trends that emerge upon compiling data, which are then communicated periodically through out the academic year to the elected REC for future broad advocacy efforts. Your voice makes a difference here.
