Vice-President External

Amanda LeBlanc

Program: Bachelor of Arts, Policy Studies

Phone: (403) 440-6404



My name is Amanda LeBlanc, and I am excited to be the new VP External at SAMRU. It is an exciting, critical and interesting time in Alberta politics, and the Students’ Association needs a strong voice representing them to government and stakeholders. I commit to advocate strongly and effectively to all levels of government to guarantee that the qualities that make MRU enjoyable and an exceptional place for students to succeed in academics and prosper in personal growth, remain in place.

In addition to my role as VP External, I have been elected as Vice-Chair of the Council of Alberta University Students (CAUS). CAUS represents the interests of over 100,000 Alberta university students across Alberta. Moreover, I am the primary delegate the Canadian Alliance of Students’ Associations (CASA). A little about me, I am currently in my last year of the Policy Studies program, and I was previously a governor at SAMRU. As well, I have previously been involved with the Policy Studies Students’ Society, and other community organizations/causes. I look forward to a year filled with advocacy, meaningful engagement, and serving our members in the best way possible.
