The Glenn Roy Blundon Centre (Student Life) was established at Memorial University in February 1992.
The Centre is dedicated to the memory of Glenn Roy Blundon, a former Memorial student and resident of Bay de Verde, Newfoundland who is remembered for his leadership and his commitment to equality and accessibility issues.
The Blundon Centre's work is informed by the theoretical approaches of Social Model of Disability and Universal Design.
The Centre, working collaboratively and innovatively with campus and community partners in our shared responsibility to accessibility and inclusion, strives:
- to connect with students activating learner responsibility in discovering rights and responsibilities to accessibile education and inclusive communities; and
- to integrate the use of universal design in removing and preventing barriers to accessible learning and living experiences and environments.
Learning experiences at the Centre reflect:
- Accessible Education
- Accessibility and Inclusion Awareness
- Student Transition Experience: High School – University – Employment.
The Centre serves prospective and current graduate and undergraduate students on the university's St. John's campus who may experience barriers to accessing post-secondary education.
