Representation Executive Council


The Representation Executive Council (REC) is your student voice and, under the direction of the Student Governing Board, they represent the interests of MRU students externally to the University and to the government.

Representatives are selected by the Student Governing Board, elected by their peers (who are members of the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University), and hired as full-time representatives for a year.

REC advocacy positions

For over a hundred years students have organized to effectively serve and represent the needs of their student community.

There were student leaders when Mount Royal was a high school, when it was a college, and to this day where it stands as an undergraduate university. With such a long history, it is important that students are aware of the positions that their student leaders are advocating on their behalf.  As such, the REC developed a document outlining position statements to help inform MRU students of the work they undertake on  their behalf.
