Memorial University of Newfoundland, positioned on the eastern edge of North Atlantic, is the home of 21st century explorers keen to develop their innate creativity and ingenuity. On four campuses and via online education, more than 18,000 students and 5,000 faculty and staff from about 90 countries learn, teach, research, create and engage.
