The 2015/2016 SAMRU Executive Committee

Teachers are leaders in their communities. During my time as a student, I was elected by my peers and spent a year working full-time as the Vice-President Academic of the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University.

In this role, I was the chief correspondent with the University community on matters of an academic nature related to students. I worked closely with the University’ President, Provost, Registrar, and Deans – as well as faculty. I was the chief representative on our Academic Parliament and spent much of the year advocating for changes and implementing policy.

I was supported by a team of volunteer student advisors who greatly informed by work, and . I’m also incredibly thankful to have come to this work as an educator – with pedagogical principles to guide my work.

My primary initiatives for the year included:

  • Awareness Campaigns on Student Rights
  • Readmission Opportunities and Success Programs for Vulnerable Students
  • A Fall Reading Week for Mental Health
  • Adoption and Growth of Open Educational Resources (OERs)
