Mount Royal University has carved out a distinct niche by offering smaller class sizes, a robust liberal education and unique undergraduate programs. Founded in 1910 and located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Mount Royal grew into a vibrant college in the 1930s and became a mid-sized university with a greater focus on bachelor degrees in 2009.


Mount Royal faculty are highly rated by students who describe their professors as knowledgeable,inspiring and engaging. Our smaller average class size ensures that faculty get to know you, and you get to know them. They challenge you to be your best while giving you the attention and support you need to succeed. You won’t be lost in the crowd.


The Office of Research, Scholarship and Community Engagement (ORSCE) is dedicated to helping research and scholarly activity from beginning to end. The ORSCE office motto for researchers is "see us early, see us often".


We invest in the wellness and development of our employees, knowing that it benefits both the individual and the university as a whole. Our culture, along with many services, resources and programs, encourages a healthy, productive workplace.
