The Inception and Subsequent Development of MUN DISC

Memorial's Organization for the Disabled (MOD II), first organized in the mid-1970's, languished for a few years until 1982 when Glenn Roy Blundon arrived on campus. He provided the spark that revitalized Memorial's Organization for the Disabled. Glenn became the driving force behind successful campaigns to attract new members, raise funds, obtain office space and have the organization receive ratification by the Council of Students Union. He was only to have two short years before his untimely death in 1984. His personality was such, that friends from his home area of Bai Verte joined him in his work.

In early 1998, M.O.D II sought and obtained center status from The Memorial University of Newfoundland Student's Union. As a result of the newly obtained centre status the M.O.D II executive decided a name change was in order. The name was decided to be Memorial University of Newfoundland Disability Information and Support Centre (MUN DISC). The centre resided at the first floor of the science building for the next two years until April 2000 when the centre relocated to the newly constructed Smallwood Center at the St. John's Campus
