Calgary’s Mount Royal University has a history built upon a strong liberal education and a connection to community.
Our designation as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus speaks to that foundation, and reflects our continued commitment to positively shape our increasingly interconnected society.
We are dedicated to Indigenous reconciliation, exceptional undergraduate experiences, socially and environmentally conscious operations, and to advancing the role for postsecondary institution in creating and sustaining a better world for everyone.
Mount Royal students, faculty, staff, administration and alumni are coming together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to address local and global challenges head-on. We teach, inspire and empower to create meaningful change in our local and global communities.
I’m not an extraordinary person who’s done all these amazing things. I’m just a regular person. This is [about] ordinary people leading change and building it into the fabric of their lives. That’s what true changemaking is. It’s being the best that you can be and working with what you’ve got to create change around you, and then working together to create larger systems change.”
Alexandra Daignault, Faculty of Arts, Mount Royal University
Mount Royal University’s Ashoka U designation reinforces our commitment to changemaking, student community service, experiential learning and Indigenization, and sheds light on the way forward. Being part of the Ashoka Canada network fosters an open, engaged environment in which our students, staff and faculty have the freedom to innovate.”
