Since, 1963 when the first Students’ Association was formed at Red River College, students at this institution have been organizing to make student life better. All Students who pay student fees become members of the SA, including full-time and part-time students as well as those enrolled in Continuing and Distance Education courses along with apprentices.
The SA acts primarily as an advocate for student concerns, publishes a student newspaper, and offers many different activities throughout the school year. On June 10, 1974, the SA was incorporated by an act of the Manitoba Legislature making it an independent legal and business entity.
Your Students’ Association conducts several revenue generating services including the Ox Student Store at the Notre Dame campus and the Red River Mercantile at The Roblin Centre (Exchange District Campus). As you will read in this guide, the SA provides many other services and programs to enhance your student life.
Each year a general student election is held (Exercise your right to vote) for the four SA executive positions; President, Vice President Academic, Vice President Internal (formerly Support Services), Vice President External (formerly Princess Street Campus). Students must be registered at RRC to run for office and while serving their term. The Presidents’ position is almost full-time (minimum 30 hours per week), while the vice presidents’ are required to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. All executive officers earn a salary commensurate with the number of hours required for their respective positions.
In addition to the executive officers, the SA employs a team of professional staff members to help manage its affairs. The SA also takes every opportunity to employ Red River College students to assist in the delivery of services.
The SA exists for its members, so if you have any concerns, problems or suggestions, please visit our Notre Dame Campus office in CM20 or call us at 632-2375 or The Roblin Centre (Exchange District Campus) office, P110 call us at 949-8475.
