As the academic year draws to a close, you’re probably busy making plans for the future. Some of you are moving on from MRU (and we’ll miss you so much!), but if you’re coming back in the fall, now’s a great time to think about what you want to get out of the next year of your education.

If you want to make a lasting contribution to the student body during your time here, consider applying to be on the Vice President Academic Advisory Committee (VPAAC) in 2016/17. VPAAC is a group of students that helps the VP Academic understand issues affecting students and takes on delegated responsibilities to represent students within the University.

The committee meets once a month for about two hours to discuss issues like scheduling, academic policies, course offerings, new programs and more. It’s an amazing way to get involved in the Students’ Association, network with University administrators, and learn how MRU works. The commitment is approximately five hours per month and is a volunteer position, although committee members receive a small honorarium.

To apply, send a resume to, along with 2-5 sentences about why you think you would be a good fit for the position, before June 30, 2016.
