About the MASU

 

The Mount Allison Students’ Union operates as a membership-based non-profit corporation, incorporated in 1980 under the New Brunswick Companies Act. We represent all full- and part-time students at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. The MASU is managed by a six-person Executive and governed by a democratically elected Council of students. To see our Vision, Mission, and Values, please visit the Who We Are page.
