Representation Executive Council

What is the Representation Executive Council (REC)?

Simply put, the Representation Executive Council 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).

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.
