SUBJECT: Grenfell Memorial University seeking input on renaming of Sir Wilfred Grenfell College
DATE: April 22,2010
In recent years, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College has been challenged by its name. Specifically, the term “college” has presented challenges for recruitment outside of the province, for securing research grants, attracting faculty and staff to a place that is not clearly labeled as a “university.”
Memorial University is seeking input on renaming through a number of avenues. Public consultations will be held at the Corner Brook and St John’s campuses:
- In St. John’s, a consultation session will be held on campus on Tuesday, April 27, from 2-4 p.m. in Room A-1043, Arts and Administration Building, 230 Elizabeth Ave
- In Corner Brook, a consultation session will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 7-9 p.m. in LC-301, the lecture theatre of the Library and Computing Building, Grenfell College
In addition, the public is invited to submit suggestions and comments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the website www.swgc.mun.ca/name by Monday, May 3, 2010.
