The Students’ Association of Mount Royal University (SAMRU) is the representative body of Mount Royal students. Established under the Post-Secondary Learning Act, SAMRU is responsible for administering the affairs and advancing the interests of the students we serve. Our student representatives, elected by their peers, direct the organization and advocate on behalf of other students.

Apart from the Post-Secondary Learning Act, our most important governing document is our bylaws, which can only be approved or changed by our membership as a whole through referenda or general meetings. Regular review of our bylaws and operating policies ensures that we remain relevant and accountable to our members.

This year, the SAMRU Governing Board approved bylaw changes to the board structure and would like to hear about the changes directly from students before the bylaws are brought to the AGM on November 13th.

The SAMRU Governing Board will be hosting three focus groups to gather feedback from students on changes to SAMRU’s bylaws and board structure. All MRU students are welcome to participate and lunch will be provided. This is your chance to have a say in your Students’ Association!

The focus groups will be held on:

Tuesday, October 7th (12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.)
Wednesday, October 8th (12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.)
Thursday October 9th (11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)

Please RSVP no later than noon on Wednesday, October 1st to with the date of the session you will be attending.
