GLOSSARY OF TERMS USED IN THIS CALENDAR

Academic standing: is an enrolment status normally determined each semester by a regular evaluation procedure used to assess whether or not students are meeting the standards prescribed for continuing in the University and/or their programs. 

Academic unit: refers to a centre, department, division, faculty, program or school, other than an administrative unit, as the context requires. 

Academic year: runs from September 1 to August 31. 

Accelerated course: is a course that is offered in a shorter time frame than a semester or session.

Administrative unit: refers to an office, division or centre, other than an academic unit, as listed in the Administrative Offices of the University section of the Calendar.

Co-requisite course:is a course which may be taken concurrently with or successfully completed prior to the course for which it is required.

Course: is a unit of work in a particular subject normally extending through one semester or session, the completion of which normally carries credit toward the fulfilment of the requirements of certain degrees, diplomas or certificates. 

Course number: courses are designated by four characters. The first character signifies the level of the course. Where all four characters are numeric, the last three are used by academic units to indicate various information such as course sequence and area of study. Where the last character is alphabetic, the letter:
A or B identifies a linked course. No credits or points are given until the "B" part is completed.
C identifies an English course that does not carry credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate.
F identifies a foundation course that is intended to remedy a specific academic weakness and does not carry credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate.
W identifies a course in either a work term in a co-operative program or a special project in certain of the professional schools and faculties and may or may not be assigned credit hours.
X identifies a course which represents an entire semester's work and carries 15 credit hours.

Courses offered outside of the normal time frame: are those with different start and/or end dates than those of the semester or session. 

Credit hour: is the measure used to reflect the relative weight of a given course toward the fulfilment of appropriate degree, diploma, certificate, major, minor, or other program requirements. A weight of 1 credit hour normally means that the course meets for lectures one hour per week for the duration of a semester or two hours per week for the duration of a session. Unless otherwise indicated, a course normally has a credit value of 3 credit hours. 

Credit-restricted courses:are courses which are closely related but not equivalent. Credit is limited to one of the credit-restricted courses. Normally, credit-restricted courses cannot be substituted, one for the other, to satisfy program requirements. 

Cross-listed courses:are courses which are listed under two or more academic units and which can be taken for credit from one unit only. Cross-listed courses can be substituted, one for the other, to satisfy program requirements. 

Degree: is an academic designation awarded for the completion of a specified program of study which is of longer duration than a diploma or certificate. 

Diploma: is an academic designation awarded for the completion of a specified program of study which is of shorter duration than a degree and longer duration than a certificate.

Equivalent courses:are those which are determined to be equal for credit determination, although the subject area or course number will differ. These are normally identified with the phrase "Same as". 

Examination: is an evaluative exercise including but not limited to tests, quizzes or mid-term, final or supplementary examinations. 

Foundation course: is a course intended to remedy a specific academic weakness and is identified by the letter "F" as the last character of the course number. A foundation course does not carry credit towards a degree, diploma or certificate.

Major: is a subject or field of study which a student normally specializes in during the course of degree studies. 

Minor: is a subject or field of study which a student normally pursues secondary to a major during the course of degree studies. 

Prerequisite course: is a course which must be successfully completed prior to commencing the course for which it is required. 

Program: is a series of courses, the successful completion of which, if all requirements are met, qualifies the candidate for a degree, diploma or certificate. 

Registration: is the process of selecting, enrolling in, and being assessed fees for courses. 

Registration period:is, in any semester, the period extending from the first day of registration to two weeks following the first day of lectures, as stated in the University Diary. In any session, it is the period extending from the first day of registration to one week following the first day of lectures, as stated in the University Diary. 

Repeatable course:is a course that may be taken for credit in several semesters to a maximum number of credit hours. All such courses shall have specified both the number of credit hours assigned per semester and the maximum number of credit hours to be awarded.

THE UNIVERSITY: HISTORY, CAMPUSES, OBJECTIVES, CONSTITUTION AND STRUCTURE

Memorial University of Newfoundland is the only university in Newfoundland and Labrador. It has campuses in St. John's and in Corner Brook, as well as Harlow, England.

The Beginning

Memorial University College was established as a memorial to the Newfoundlanders who had lost their lives on active service during the First World War; it was later rededicated to also encompass the province's war dead of the Second World War. The College opened its doors on the old Parade grounds in St. John's to a total student body of 55 on September 15, 1925.

University Status

The elevation of the College to the full status of a university was one of the priorities of the first post-Confederation Government. At the initial session of our Provincial House of Assembly, July 13, 1949, the intention of the Government of the day was conveyed by the then Lieutenant-Governor, the Honourable Sir Albert Walsh, in these words from the Speech from the Throne:

"It is considered that Newfoundland should have her own degree-conferring University and you will be invited to consider legislation which would confer upon the Memorial University College the status of a university. It is planned to widen and improve the functions, and thus increase the public usefulness of this institution created originally in honour of our illustrious dead of the First World War."

Royal assent was given the Bill creating The Memorial University of Newfoundland on August 13, 1949, exactly one month to the day from the opening of the House. The Board of Regents and the Senate were inaugurated in May 1950, and the first Convocation of the University was held on June 3, 1950, when the first degrees were awarded.

A Period of Expansion

With university status, Memorial University of Newfoundland entered a period of rapid growth that was to continue into the 70s. In 1949-1950, there was a student body of 307 in the new University; in the academic year 1961-1962, when the University moved to its present campus, the student enrolment had reached 1745 full-time and 152 part-time. Ten years later, 1971-1972, the student population, including full- and part-time students on degree programs, was 10,980.

Meanwhile, there were equally dramatic changes in the variety and extent of available academic programs. In the early years of the University, there were two Faculties (Arts and Science, and Education). While the academic structure was quite similar in 1961, when the University moved to the present campus, areas of instruction, course offerings and degrees awarded had all increased.

Today, the University has six Faculties - Arts, Science, Education, Medicine, Engineering and Business Administration; and six Schools - Graduate Studies, Nursing, Human Kinetics and Recreation, Social Work, Music and Pharmacy; and also offers degree programs in Fine Arts.

In 1975, the University established a campus in Corner Brook. The College, in 1979, was named the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College honouring the memory of the medical missionary who pioneered medicine in Northern Newfoundland and along the coast of Labrador. In addition to the college's first- and second-year course offerings, and degree programs in fine arts, bachelor of arts programs in cognitive studies, English and psychology were introduced in 1993 and a bachelor of science program in environmental science in 1995. As of 1996, students may also take the first two years of the forest resource program offered through the University of New Brunswick.

In 1992 the Marine Institute joined the University, becoming the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. Founded in 1964, the institute offers a range of programs in fisheries and marine technology and is involved in research and technology transfer.

Memorial University of Newfoundland’s faculty and students actively participate in research and development in a number of disciplines.

In 1966 the Board of Regents approved the establishment of a small residential campus at Harlow, Essex approximately midway between London and Cambridge. The campus has gone through extensive modernisation in 2002 and the newly refurbished campus is designed to meet the needs of today’s students - those from Memorial University of Newfoundland wishing to study in Europe and those in Europe interested in pursuing studies at Harlow Campus.  Additionally the campus is now ideally suited for executive programs, corporate retreats and conferences, with technologically equipped meeting facilities and residence accommodations for up to 50, as well as excellent food service capacity.

The main campus building is a converted 19th century Maltings (formerly used for drying barley for brewing) - accommodating 40 students in high quality twin ensuite accommodation, which can be converted to single accommodation when required.  In addition there is a purpose designed single bedroom for a disabled guest, with roll in shower and toilet facilities.  A further 10 students can be accommodated in Cabot House, a self-contained residence house in a 17th century cottage with 4 twin rooms and 2 single rooms all with shared facilities.

Each bed in both the Maltings and Cabot House has a direct dial inward telephone (with the option of pre-paid or billed line usage) and computer point with internet access (for use with personal lap-top computers).

The campus has three fully self-contained faculty properties each with one double and one twin room.  These are two appartments at 44 and 46 Market Street and St. John’s Cottage.

Conference/training space is available in St. John’s House, which is the main lecture hall situated in a converted Victorian Schoolhouse.  The lecture hall is fully networked and has audio-visual connectivity.  Flexible seating arrangements means the facility can comfortably accommodate up to 25 delegates.  Additional conference/training space is available in the Lord Taylor Room situated in the Maltings.  This conference room is fully networked and has flexible seating arrangements accommodating up to 20 delegates.

The Resources Room in the Maltings accommodates the library and small computer suite (which is set up to be additional teaching space when required).  An area of the room is designed to be quiet space with study cubicles and comfortable seating.

The University will systematically act to enhance quality in all of the services: to students, to the rest of the university community and to external stakeholders.

The second and third themes derive from our mission.

2. Outreach Education

The University will adapt its programs and services to meet the changing needs, expectations and characteristics of students.

3. Community Resource

The University will enhance its presence in the community and create means for our community to learn about and to utilize the resources of the university.

The fourth and fifth themes derive from our location.

4. Mid-North/Atlantic

The University will take advantage of its mid-north and Atlantic location in educational programs, research activities and community services.

The MUNSU motto is Students Serving Students. Based on this motto the Students' Union operates a range of services that improve the quality of student life: the Copy Centre, The Attic (Used Bookstore and Postal Service), Health and Dental Insurance, Safe Drive/WalkSafe, the MUNSU Student Planner, Breezeway Bar, and CHMR-FM Radio. The cost of services are partially funded by MUNSU fees that are paid by each undergraduate student upon registration.

MUNSU assists students on an individual basis to resolve student aid, as well as academic-based problems. Through the offices of the Vice President External and the Vice President Academic, problems with appeals, assessments, repayment and general complaints in these areas are addressed.

The Students' Union offers free legal services to students during a semester and a legal aid supervisor is available for appointment - check the MUNSU General Office for legal aid office hours. Please note that these sessions are not considered extended legal counsel. Students who have more serious issues may be referred to the MUNSU lawyer, for one free session, per issue, per semester.

THE GRADUATE STUDENTS' UNION

The Graduate Students' Union (GSU) at Memorial University of Newfoundland is an organization run for graduate students by graduate students. Founded in 1967, the GSU is one of Canada's oldest independently incorporated graduate student governments. Every graduate student at Memorial University of Newfoundland becomes a member of the GSU upon registration. Presently, the graduate student body consists of over 2000 full and part-time students, thereby comprising approximately 10% of the total student population at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

The Graduate Students' Union has two main functions: 1) to represent and protect the interests of the graduate students at all levels of university governance, and 2) to help enhance the quality of graduate student life at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Graduate student fees, presently $20 per semester per student, provide the GSU with an annual operating budget. These fees are used to run the GSU office, help finance social and academic events for graduate students, provide conference aid for students presenting at conferences, and to cover other operating expenses.

The Graduate Students' Union is run by a Board of Directors consisting of the five GSU Executive officers and one student representative from each academic unit with a graduate program. Additionally, graduate students who sit on various university committees regularly attend. The Board meets once a month to assist the Executive in guiding the development and direction of the organization. The Board meetings also give students a chance to raise concerns from their individual departments and in return, to receive advice or suggestions on problem solving. These meetings are the main line of communication between the Executive officers and the graduate student population at the University. It is for this reason, that the GSU needs an active and interested Board of Directors. Graduate students who are interested in getting involved are always welcome, and should speak to their department representative, or contact the GSU office.

The Graduate Students' Union is located in Feild Hall on the north side of campus. Operated by the GSU, Feild Hall is comprised of four floors: the top two floors for a graduate student residence, one floor for departmental graduate student offices and GSU offices, and the ground floor for Bitters - Restaurant and Lounge, the pub owned and operated by the GSU.

The Graduate Students' Union general office is located on the second floor of Feild Hall in room GH2007. Office hours are posted outside the office door, on the answering service and the website. You can reach the GSU by phone (709)737-4395, by fax at (709)737-3395, by email gsu@mun.ca, or by writing to:

The University will provide such assistance as it can through the Housing, Food and Conference Services. Accommodation on campus is available at Paton College and Burton's Pond Apartments. See Off-Campus Housing for information about accommodation off- campus.

While Housing, Food and Conference Services oversees the operation of Paton College, all houses are administered internally by representatives of both Housing, Food and Conference Services and the students. Each house is under the supervision of a Proctor, who is responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the residence. The Proctor is assisted by several Resident Assistants, who reside on each floor. Each residence also elects a House Committee comprised of students to represent the house in various matters, and to organize social and recreational activities in the residence. An Academic Don is also appointed for each residence by Housing, Food and Conference Services. The Don is responsible for co-ordinating academic support programs in residence including the supervising of computer room and a free tutoring program. The Residence Life peer helpers provide information concerning wellness issues through awareness campaigns and special events. Student leadership opportunities and employment are offered in the form of resident assistant, academic Don, student assistant and MUCEP positions.

Most rooms in Paton College are double occupancy. Only students who have spent a minimum of two terms in residence, including the most recent academic term, are eligible for a single room. Eligibility for single rooms will be determined by number of terms spent in Paton College and number of university credit hours.

The top floor of most Paton College houses have been designated as quiet floors and stereos are permitted on low volume in these areas. Students who prefer to live in a section where quiet standards are maintained, should request a quiet floor on their application form. While regular floors do not have 24 hour quiet hours, there are designated quiet hours for studying. There are areas in all Paton College Residences that are designated as smoke free

Students with special needs may be accommodated. There are a limited number of wheelchair accessible rooms. Students with other special needs are encouraged to contact us to determine whether Paton College can meet their individual requirements.

All students of Paton College are required to purchase a meal plan as a condition of residency. Special diets may be arranged for students with medical conditions provided they have proper documentation. The university cannot guarantee an allergen free environment.

Mail service is available to all residents. Students are responsible for their own personal items, such as soap, towels, and linens.

Most houses are connected to an extensive underground tunnel system that allows students access to most of the university's facilities.

Each house has a television room, computer room, study lounge, games room, and laundry facilities. Several residences also have exercise and weight rooms, furnished guest lounges, and snack canteens. Pay telephones are available on each floor or students may make arrangements to have their own phone installed.

CENTRE FOR APPLIED HEALTH RESEARCH (CAHR)

Director:  Dr. Stephen Bornstein

The CAHR was established in September, 1999 as a partnership among the University, the Department of Health and Community Services of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Health Care Corporation of St. John's. The mandate of the Centre is to increase the capacity for applied health research in the province. Applied health research consists of research addressing issues in health that are relevant to public policy and clinical decision making. Health, in turn, is defined very broadly to include all aspects of the physical and mental health and well being of individuals and communities.

CAHR places a strong emphasis on inter-disciplinary approaches to health and health research, and works towards fostering and supporting inter-faculty collaborations. The Centre also serves as a bridge between university researchers and decision-makers in government, the provincial health-care system, and community organizations. The Centre helps to fund health research in Newfoundland and Labrador by organizing an annual competition in which it awards a number of project grants and seed grants through a peer-reviewed evaluation process. It also helps to fund research training in applied health by awarding fellowships at the master's, doctoral and postdoctoral levels. For further information contact:

Dr. T. Borlase, Director
Dr. R. Sparkes, Labrador Associate
Ms. B. Dickers, Administrative Staff Specialist
Ms. M. MacDonald, Program Researcher
Ms. L. Nuotio, Manager, Labrador West

PURPOSE AND MANDATE

The Labrador Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland was established by the University to stimulate, coordinate, and support major University projects and programmes designed to promote the well-being of the people of Labrador and to expand the Labrador knowledge base. Its location in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, the administrative centre of Labrador, gives it a perspective on regional and aboriginal conditions and issues that direct the operations of the Institute.

The Institute identifies opportunities in research where the capabilities of the University may enhance our knowledge of Labrador and address concerns of the community, and puts forward educational needs for continuing human resource and cultural development.

The Institute is the main contact point for the University in Labrador. The Institute maintains communications with aboriginal and community groups and the Faculties and Schools of the University to ensure that there is a timely response to research and educational opportunities.  It also sponsors many cultural activities including the Labrador Creative Arts Festival.

The Institute facilitates and coordinates the activity of personnel at the University as they undertake cultural, research, and educational activities. The Institute partners with Faculties and Schools to solicit funds for research and the delivery of educational programs and with other social, cultural and educational institutions in Labrador.

The Institute is not a regulatory body and does not interfere with the normal process of grant applications by individuals. However, it recommends that notice or copies of such applications be filed with the Institute to obviate duplication of effort within the University.  It also maintains and administers an invaluable archival collection of Labrador materials.  It is the Institute's intent to collect and disseminate all pertinent copies of research conducted by or through the University.

ORGANIZATION

The Director of the Institute reports to the Vice-President (Academic).

The Research Advisory Committee, comprised of faculty members who are engaged in research in Labrador, maintain communications between the Institute and the Faculties and Schools. It advises on research and educational projects and priorities.

The Advisory Board, comprising Labrador residents, has both geographic and aboriginal representation appointed by the Vice-President on the recommendation of the Director of the Labrador Institute. The Board provides direct input from the community into the operations of the Institute.

The Labrador Institute maintains a centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Labrador West with facilities for teaching, research, seminars, and conferences. An Archive provides a reference collection of publications on Labrador and other northern regions for public use, and arranges inter-library loans through the main University library. Communication facilities available include teleconference and microcomputer systems linked with the St. John's campus.  The Labrador Institute also is the ACURA site for archaeogical work in Labrador and is responsible for the coordination of activities within the Labrador South Research Initiative.

NORTHERN SCIENCE TRAINING GRANTS

The Labrador Institute along with the Office of Research acts as the agent within the University which receives and disburses Northern Scientific Training Program grants received from the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. The Institute also serves as the University's representative on the Association of Canadian Universities of Northern Studies.

In 1986 the Maritime History Archive was established as a separate unit within the Faculty of Arts as a result of reorganization of the Maritime History Group. Its functions include the acquisition, organization, and preservation of materials relating to the history of sea-based activities and societies, with a special emphasis on the North Atlantic Basin.

Since the mid-1970's the Public Record Office, London, England has transferred 22,000 ft. of original documentation in the series "Agreements on Account of Crew" for the period of 1863-1938, 1951-1976 to the Maritime History Archive. These documents represent an incomparable source for the study of the movements and manning of British Empire vessels throughout the world. Combined with collections relating to fisheries, commerce, and other sea-based activities, the crew agreements have made the Maritime History Archive an internationally known resource centre for the study of maritime history.

The Archive is housed in the Mathematics Building and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. during University Fall and Winter Semesters. A research service (for a fee) to undertake small research projects and answer queries pertaining to its subject area is also available.

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

The Ocean Engineering Research Centre (OERC) is an integral part of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and has contributed to the success of the research and academic programs within the Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering group at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The overall goal of the OERC is to generate research activity that has high potential for impact. The OERC draws upon faculty expertise and its relationships with industry, other research institutes, and branches of government to create networks of people who share common goals. The scope of applied research and consulting activities carried out by members of the OERC is broad, including ocean engineering related to the offshore, marine transportation, and fishing industries. In addition to faculty experience, the OERC operates a 58 meter long towing tank with wave generation capabilities.

ORGANIZATION

The St. John's marine research community is vibrant and collaborative. Within the University the Centre maintains ties with C-CORE (by joint appointments of faculty and collaborative projects), with the Ocean Science Centre and the Fisheries and Marine Institute. Similar ties are maintained with the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT) of the National Research Council, which is located adjacent to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science on the University campus. The Centre collaborates with and serves various small and large private sector firms with ocean engineering interests. The Centre works with Oceanic Consulting Corporation to provide marine performance evaluation services to the world's oceans industries. An alliance between the University, NRC and Marineering Limited of St. John's, Oceanic uses the ocean engineering capabilities and facilities of the University and NRC to support clients and projects around the world.

Memorial University of Newfoundland’s P.J. Gardiner Institute (PJG) was the first centre of small business support to be established within a Canadian university. The objective of the Institute is to be the leading entrepreneurship institute in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and a contributor to innovative frameworks for entrepreneurship education and support worldwide.  To satisfy this objective, the PJG is comprised of four complementary centres.

The Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Gateway - The creation of the Gateway was a collaboration of the Youth-Focused Technological Entrepreneurship (YTE) Chair and the PJG. It is a university-based mechanism to bridge the gap between the needs of potential entrepreneurs at the seminal stages of enterprise development, and the various resources, programs and agencies that exist to meet those needs. The Gateway is catalytic in connecting the right client with the right resource at the right time. It is complementary to existing private, academic, and government agencies and programs in that its role is one of connectivity rather than duplication of service. The Gateway operates as a “re-entry model” in that a client returns to the Gateway as often as is useful for additional navigational help and support.

The Entrepreneurship Research Centre - Entrepreneurial research  is being captured, catalogued, and stored in the Research Centre. This body of research is accessible to other researchers and the general public and disseminated by the Research Centre. The PJG is able to facilitate the participation of faculty in its research program and continue many of the entrepreneurship themes of the YTE Chair in years to come. It will become the repository of entrepreneurship development ‘tools’ and entrepreneurship research and will capture and disseminate entrepreneurship education and current research in the area of technological entrepreneurship.

The Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Outreach Centre - This centre develops and delivers outreach services to meet the needs of provincial and federal economic development agencies, as well as business resource agencies, in areas of particular interest or relevance.  These activities create a robust interaction with provincial economic development agencies and are an essential point of intersection between the work of the PJG and the needs of real people in the real economy.

The Centre for Family Business - This centre provides consulting, research and education in support of the special needs of family business.  Historically, the needs of family business have been poorly understood and the vulnerabilities and opportunities facing family businesses have been inadequately addressed.  There is a need to attend to and support issues related to training, succession planning, skill development, and financing.  The centre conducts comprehensive, relevant research into questions of unique interest to the family business dynamic.

COMPANY PROFILE

Established in 1977, TETRA, formerly known as Telemedicine, is internationally recognized as having one of the most advanced networks in North America. TETRA has a proven track record and tradition of providing telehealth and tele-education services to a great number of clients over a large geographic region. In support of this effort TETRA, an agency of Memorial University of Newfoundland, Faculty of Medicine operates on a full-scale Telemedicine Centre from its location in the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s. TETRA is an administrative structure that successfully networks technology, support, personnel and end users. It has a proven history, of research development programs and service delivery, in the use of information and communications technologies in health and education in Newfoundland and Labrador. Over the years, TETRA has been involved in over 30 telemedicine projects, many of which have become ongoing services.

TETRA’s audience has expanded in recent years and a significant consortium utilizes its resources. The users include provincial and federal departments and agencies, international organizations, not for profit groups and associations, educational institutions, private companies and local citizens.

The Centre has developed fairly autonomously within the Faculty of Medicine with historical close working ties to other divisions within the University. All human resource and financial management processes adhere to appropriate university policies however TETRA does not receive direct funding from Memorial University of Newfoundland. TETRA generates 100% of its revenue required to cover salaries, operating expenses and network costs, based on fees recovered from its user consortium.

Over the past decade TETRA’s activities have diversified into a full range of research, development and service provision. Therefore, it sought out a name to reflect this change. Utilizing all aspects of information and communications technology, TETRA has developed expertise and experience in conference calling, videoconferencing, web-based technologies as well as the management of terrestrial and satellite networks.

As a provincial communications resource, TETRA is a model in Canada as a result of the degree of co-operation and support from the many agencies, organizations, individuals and TETRA employees that make it a reality.
