Administrative history

The first student government was elected on October 8, 1971. Composed of two committees, one each from the Cromdale and Old Scona campuses, it was incorporated under the existing provincial legislation as a legal entity. A revised copy of the students’ union constitution was recorded in the Board of Governors meeting minutes from April 12, 1972 (appendix A).

The Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) is a non-profit organization working independently from MacEwan University, and is governed by elected student representatives. Students’ Council is the highest governing body within the Association. It is comprised of 14 Councillors, one Alberta College Campus delegate, and five Executive Committee members.
