Glenn Roy Blundon Centre for Students with Disabilities
The Glenn Roy Blundon Centre was established at Memorial University of Newfoundland in February 1992 and is dedicated to the memory of Glenn Roy Blundon, a former Memorial student and resident of Bay de Verde, NL. Glenn is remembered for his leadership and his commitment to equality and accessibility issues.
The mission of the Glenn Roy Blundon Centre is to provide and co-ordinate programs and services that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential and to increase awareness of inclusive values among all members of the university community.
We assist students by facilitating access to information, services and campus facilities in accordance with the university's Policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities. The centre carries out its mission in collaboration with faculty, staff and students at Memorial University and off-campus agencies, including disability community organizations.
The Centre serves prospective and current students on the St. John's campus whose disabilities involve mobility, vision, hearing, learning (disabilities), chronic illnesses or mental health. Support is also provided to students with documented temporary illnesses and injuries.
New students are encouraged to contact the centre at least six weeks before registration to discuss their accommodation request. Delays in notifying or disclosing a disability for which accommodation is sought may result in an accommodation request not being processed in time for the commencement of the term or course in which the accommodation is being sought.
