Established under the Post-Secondary Learning Act, the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University (SAMRU) is responsible for administering the affairs and advancing the interests of the students we serve.

SAMRU is a registered charity that operates the Wyckham House Student Centre and serves and represents students to help them succeed.

The Student Governing Board (SGB) is a policy-making Board of Director that oversees and governs the organization on behalf of members. As such, all Governors have an important role in directing the organization as a whole and acting as and the official channel of communication between the students of Mount Royal University and the Mount Royal University Board of Governors.

Apart from the Post-Secondary Learning Act, SAMRU’s most important governing document is our bylaws. The bylaws can only be approved or changed by Special Resolution at any annual or special general meeting of SAMRU. Regular review of our bylaws and operating policies ensures that we remain relevant and accountable to our members.
