Representation Executive Council
The Representation Executive Council (REC) is your student voice and, under the Student Governing Board, they represent the interests of students of Mount Royal University as well as externally to all three levels of government.
Representatives are elected by their peers, who are members of the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University (SAMRU).

SAMRU’s Representation Executive Council (REC)
The four elected students who form SAMRU’s Representation Executive Council act in accordance with the wishes of the Student Governing Board, which is ultimately responsible for governing the Students’ Association. REC deals with student representation aspects of the organization, such as tuition and loan policies, lobbying, and external relations.
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.
