Planning at Memorial
Memorial University is committed to providing the safest possible environment for students, faculty and staff. The university is committed to ensuring the university is well prepared for any public health emergency, including H1N1.
The university is continuing to monitor the potential and actual impacts of the H1N1 situation on our community.
Our goal is to optimize protection of our people, assets and reputation; minimize disruptions to the teaching, research and business activities; and to return to a state of normalcy as quickly as possible.
We are monitoring this situation in conjunction with the Government of Newfoundland and the Public Health Agency of Canada, and keeping abreast of emergency management activities at other Canadian universities.
The university promotes the Generic Emergency Management Principles of: Integration, Collaboration, Co-ordination Comprehensiveness, Progressiveness and Flexibility. We prepare for the worst case scenario, hoping for the best case scenario.
As an Educational Institution, Memorial promotes the principles of:
• Academic Fairness to Students
• Program Integrity
• Open and Timely Communication
Memorial University is taking its H1N1 guidance from public health officials. We plan to remain open, but with the possibility of a reduction in our services and programs.
In this regard, we have prepared a presentation entitled Emergency Management, H1N1 Planning at Memorial which will inform students, faculty and our staff on:
- Our H1N1 planning objectives
- Our H1N1 planning assumptions
- A summary of the topics which could be impacted by H1N1 that have been reviewed or are still under review
- Identification of mitigation strategies which are being considered or have been developed
- Status of specific detailed H1N1 plans which will have impact across the campus community
This presentation, usually made by Emergency Planning Co-ordinator Karen Alexander, provides specific information and includes a question period.
Please refer to H1N1 Updates on this site for upcoming sessions.
If you have questions or require clarity after viewing this power
point presentation, please email Karen Alexander.
