Explanation of terms used in this calendar

The academic year: September 1 to August 31.

A SEMESTER means a period of approximately fourteen consecutive weeks during which the University is in regular session and in which period there are at least twelve teaching weeks as defined by the Senate. Normally the Fall Semester commences in early September, the Winter Semester in early January, and the Spring Semester in early May.

A SESSION means a period of approximately seven consecutive weeks during which the University is in regular session in the Spring Semester and in which period there are at least six teaching weeks as defined by the Senate. The first half of Spring Semester will be designated as Intersession; the second half of Spring Semester will be designated as Summer Session.

A 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 fulfillment of the requirements of certain degrees, diplomas or certificates.

A CREDIT HOUR is the measure used to reflect the relative weight of a given course towards the fulfilment of appropriate degree, diploma, certificate, major, minor, or other programme requirements. Normally, a course has a credit value of three credit hours. A weight of one 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. The number of hours of required instruction, outside of lecture time, such as laboratory instruction, tutorials, etc. may or may not impact on the number of credit hours assigned to a particular course and academic units may recommend to the Senate a greater or lesser whole number of credit hours for a particular course.

In this Calendar, undergraduate courses are designated by four characters. The first three characters are numeric. The fourth character may be numeric or alphabetic. The first character signifies the level of the course. Where all four characters are numeric, the last three are for the use of the Department and may signify course sequence and the like. If the last character is alphabetic, special rules apply.

i. A six-credit hour linked course has the letter "A" or "B" as the fourth character. No credits or points are given for the "A" part of a linked course until the "B" part is completed. Upon completion of the "B" part, six credit hours are assigned. The grade and points for both parts of the course are the same as those obtained for the "B" part.

ii. If the last character is "M", the course represents an entire semester's work in the Faculty of Medicine and is assigned 15 credit hours.

iii. If the last character is "X", the course represents an entire semester's work and is assigned 15 credit hours.

iv. If the last character is "F", the course is one which does not carry credit for a degree but is intended to remedy specific academic weakness.

v. If the last character is "W" the course represents a Work Period in the co-operative programme or a special project in certain of the professional schools and faculties (e.g. School of Nursing, Faculty of Business Administration). These courses are required components of certain degree and diploma programmes but do not carry credit.

A PROGRAMME is a series of courses the completion of which, if other requirements are met, qualifies the candidate for a degree, diploma, or certificate, e.g. B.A. Degree Programme, Education Diploma Programme.

GENERAL INFORMATION

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 and St. Pierre et Miquelon.

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, later also to encompass the province's war dead of the Second World War. The College opened its doors on the old Parade grounds 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 entered a period of rapid growth that was to continue into the 70's. In 1949-50, there was a student body of 307 in the brand-new University; in the academic year 1961-62, when the University moved to its present campus, the student enrolment had reached 1745 full-time and 152 part-time. Ten years later, 1971-72, the student population, including full- and part-time students on degree programmes, was 10,980.

Meanwhile, there were equally dramatic changes in the variety and extent of available academic programmes. 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 seven Schools - Graduate Studies, Nursing, Physical Education and Athletics, Social Work, Continuing Education, Music and Pharmacy; and also offers degree programmes 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 programmes in fine arts, bachelor of arts programmes in cognitive studies, English and psychology were introduced in 1993 and a bachelor of science programme in environmental science in 1995.

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

In seeking to meet the expanding needs of the province and to broaden its outreach, the university has established over the years a number of special divisions. These include the Amino Acid Facility, the Art Gallery, the Archaeology Unit, the Botanical Garden, the Centre for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), the Canadian Centre for International Fisheries Training and Development (CCIFTD), the Centre for Cold Ocean Resources Engineering (C-CORE), the Continuing Engineering Education Centre (CEE), the English Language Research Centre, the Centre for Earth Resources Research (CERR), the Centre for International Business Studies, the Centre for Management Development (CMD), the Centre for Material Culture Studies, the Centre for Offshore and Remote Medicine (MEDICOR), Chair in Child Protection, the Don Snowden Centre for Development Support Communications, the Food Science Pilot Plant, the Geographical Information and Digital Analysis Laboratory (GEOIDAL), the Gerontology Centre, the Institut Frecker in St. Pierre, the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER), the Labrador Institute of Northern Studies (LINS), the Maritime History Archive, the Maritime Studies Research Unit (MSRU), the Memorial University of Newfoundland Cartographic Laboratory (MUNCL), the Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore and Language Archive (MUNFLA), the NSERC/FPI/NSP Chair, the NSERC/Mobil Chair, the NSERC/Petro-Canada Chair, the Ocean Engineering Research Centre (OERC), the Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC), the P.J. Gardiner Institute, Seabright Corporation Limited, the Statistical Consulting Laboratory, Telemedicine and the Telemedicine and Educational Technology Resource Agency (TETRA).

THE CAMPUSES

St. John's

The St. John's campus covers a total area of approximately 220 acres. It is divided by Prince Philip Drive, a four-lane arterial road that runs east to west across the campus. To the south, the boundary is Elizabeth Avenue; to the north, Long Pond and Kelly's Farm. The western boundary follows Westerland Drive, west along Prince Philip Drive and north along Wicklow Street; on the east, the campus is bounded by Higgin's Line and adjoins the St. John's Arts & Culture Centre property on Allandale Road.

On that part of the campus to the south of Prince Philip Drive are the Arts and Administration, Science, Chemistry-Physics, G.A. Hickman, Henrietta Harvey, Physical Education, Biotechnology, Services and M.O. Morgan buildings, the Queen Elizabeth II Library, Paton College, Burton's Pond Apartments, CSU-MUN Child Care Centre, the Thomson Student Centre, and a number of smaller buildings.

North of Prince Philip Drive are the Health Sciences Centre incorporating the Faculty of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Pharmacy and The St. John's General Hospital; the S.J. Carew Building, the Alexander Murray Building, the Faculty of Business Administration Building, the Captain Robert A. Bartlett Building, St. John's College, Coughlan College, Queen's College and the Marine Institute on Ridge Road. The National Research Council's Institute for Marine Dynamics, which is Canada's prime centre for studies related to cold ocean resource development, is also located on the north side of the campus.

Corner Brook

The Sir Wilfred Grenfell College stands on a magnificent 185-acre site with a spectacular view of the city of Corner Brook and the Bay of Islands. It is a complex housing administrative, academic and recreational sections, a student residence, dining hall, and bookstore. The Fine Arts Building features state-of-the-art facilities for the theatre and visual arts programmes. The latest building, housing library, computer lab, and lecture hall facilities, opened in the fall of 1995.

Marine Institute

The Marine Institute is located on Ridge Road in Pippy Park. The main building has a commanding position overlooking the city of St. John's and is the cornerstone of a complex of facilities equipped for education and research to meet the needs of the marine industry and associated businesses.

Other Marine Institute facilities include a site located about 30 kilometres from St. John's at Little Soldier's Pond, where programmes in theoretical and practical elements of training to prepare marine personnel to handle emergency situations are offered; a marine base at the Southside of St. John's Harbour, where realistic offshore safety drills take place; a building at Nagles Hill, where the Aquaculture Unit is housed, and offices located in the Pippy Park Headquarters where international activities are the focused.

OBJECTIVES OF THE UNIVERSITY

The objectives of Memorial University of Newfoundland are: to develop in the province an institution of higher learning deserving of respect for the quality of its academic standards and of its research; to establish new programmes to meet the expanding needs of the province; and to provide the means whereby the University may reach out to all the people.

In 1994 Memorial adopted a mission statement and strategic plan. The mission statement reads,

Memorial University is committed to excellence in teaching, research and scholarship, and service to the general public.

Memorial University recognizes a special obligation to educate the citizens of Newfoundland and Labrador, to undertake research on the challenges this province faces and to share its expertise with the community.

Memorial University's strategy to meet the 21st century has five themes. These themes are inclusive, in that they are intended to apply throughout the university and to break down barriers to communication and cooperation across disciplines, and academic and administrative units.

A comprehensive theme is quality in everything we do.

1. Quality
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 programmes 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 programmes, research activities and community services.

5. Expanding Horizons
The university will develop its international linkages to promote individual, cultural and economic growth, and to provide a means to contribute to the world community.

THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

The University Library consists of the Queen Elizabeth II Library, the Health Sciences Library, and the Dr. C.R. Barrett Library, Marine Institute, all in St. John's, and the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Library in Corner Brook. These four units together have a collection equivalent to 2.5 million volumes. This collection serves as the major information resource for the University as well as the province. All units of the library system may be used by all students, faculty and staff, as well as the community at large.

The Queen Elizabeth II Library was opened for service in January 1982. It is an impressive structure of 200,000 square feet on five levels. It has a seating capacity of 2,000 and can hold 1.6 million physical volumes. The Information Services Division, located on the main floor (second level), provides assistance to people wishing to make use of the library's resources and services. This division provides reference and computer-assisted bibliographic search services. Library tours and individual or group instruction in the use of the library and its resources may be arranged for students through this division. The Government Documents Section contains a depository collection of Canadian government documents together with an extensive collection of material from the U.S. and other countries and international organizations. The Lending Services Division provides interlibrary loan and services to off-campus students as well as maintaining the stacks in the library.

COUNSELLING CENTRE

The primary function of the Counselling Centre is to help students release, develop or direct their personal capabilities. Through individualized personal counselling and a wide range of programmes, students are encouraged and helped to develop their own unique resources and thereby promote personal growth and intellectual development. The Centre also serves as a training centre for advanced students in a number of helping professions. Services will be offered free of charge to students in three basic areas.

Learning Enhancement Programmes

Through a number of short courses and structured activities, students may actively enhance their learning capabilities. Most of the learning programmes offered train participants to employ a number of organizational techniques to comprehend and, later, to recall important concepts. Specific programmes offered through the Centre apply these ideas to the areas of Speed Reading and Comprehension, Organizing Ideas for Term Papers and Essays, and Oral Communication.

Career Planning

An appropriate career choice appears to be a major contributor to students' satisfaction with their performance in university. The Career Planning Centre (T 3035) serves as a drop-in centre designed to help students in such areas as gathering information relevant to educational and career goals, performing self-exploration of career-related interests, clarifying values, acquiring more effective decision-making strategies, and developing both short- and long-term career plans. The Centre is open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in summer) and is staffed continuously by counsellors and student paraprofessionals. Students are encouraged to stop in and acquaint themselves with the Centre's resources.

Individual and Group Counselling For Other Personal Concerns

In addition to individualized personal counselling, the Centre offers specialized group and/or training programmes. For many students such concerns as fear of testing, fear of asserting one's self, and continued mental and physical stress can lead to poor academic performance or personal problems. These, and other such difficulties, can be dealt with on either an individual or a group basis, depending upon the student's wishes. Therefore, programmes such as Test Anxiety Management, Relaxation Training, Biofeedback Training and Assertiveness Training are routinely offered. Other programmes include behaviour modification (Smoker's Clinic, Weight Control) as well as Growth Groups in areas such as Personal Growth, Sexuality, Men's and Women's Awareness Groups, and Assertiveness Training.

The Counselling Centre and the Career Planning Centre are located on the 3rd Floor, Thomson Student Centre, and are open from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (4:30 p.m. in summer), Monday through Friday. All services are free of charge to students and appointments can be made in person (T 3019) or by telephone (737-8874).

The student must also sign a claim form for each medical or hospital service rendered.

Medicals

"Medicals" (pre-employment, SCUBA, driver's licence, life insurance, etc.) are NOT covered by insurance plans and must be paid for by the student.

THE STUDENTS' UNION

The Memorial University of Newfoundland Students' Union Act, 1968, which incorporated the Students' Union, defines the objectives of the Union as follows: to promote artistic, literary, educational, social, recreational, charitable and sporting activities for the advancement of the interests of its members and others; to act as the official organization of the students of the University; and to co-ordinate, promote and direct the activities of the students of the University.

The objectives of the Union are carried out by many societies, ranging from M.U.N. Radio and the MUSE to the Education Society and the Commerce Society. Every society which has its constitution ratified by the Council is a part of the Union.

The governing body of the Students' Union is the Council which is composed of an elected executive, the President and four Vice-Presidents, and elected representatives from all segments of the student body. The Council is the official liaison between the student body and the administration of the University.

All recognized societies are financed from the Students' Union budget which comes mostly from Students' Union fees. Council offices are located in the Thomson Student Centre.

CHILDCARE CENTRES

The Students' Union operates four non-profit Childcare Centres for children ranging in age from two to ten years.

These centres situated in the CSU/MUN Childcare Building (next to Burton's Pond), are fully licensed by the provincial government, and strictly adhere to all provincial regulations.

Although these centres serve the entire university community, children of full-time students are given priority for the fall term if their application is on file at the centre by April 30, of that year.

For further information, please call 737-4728/4729.

STUDENTS' UNION FEE

All full-time and part-time undergraduate students of the University pay a compulsory students' Union fee and all students, upon registration, automatically become members of the Students' Union.

THE GRADUATE STUDENTS' UNION

The Graduate Students' Union (GSU), an organization run for the graduate students by the graduate students at Memorial University, has been in existence since 1967. Every graduate student at MUN becomes a member of the GSU upon registration. Presently the graduate student body consists of over 1300 full- and part-time students, thereby comprising almost 10% of the total student population.

Recently, the GSU has acquired Feild Hall, two floors of which serve as residence for graduate students, one floor houses departmental graduate student offices and one floor on which the graduate student lounge and restaurant, "Bitters", is located. The GSU also owns the Graduate House, a residence on Military Road, that can also be booked for social events.

The GSU office is located in the newly acquired Feild Hall, Room 2007. Office hours are posted outside the office door and are also indicated on the GSU answering system. You can reach the GSU office by phone (709)737-4395, by fax at (709)737-3395, or by writing to: Graduate Students' Union, 216 Prince Philip Drive, #2007, St. John's, Newfoundland, A1B 3R5.

The GSU has two important functions: 1) to represent the graduate students' interests in enhancing the quality of graduate student life, and 2) to help sort out problems and misunderstandings arising between individuals and the university. Student fees, presently $15 per semester per graduate student, provide the GSU with its annual operating budget. The fees are used to run the office, assist social and academic events, provide a Conference Aid Fund, and cover other operating expenses. A detailed budget is presented at the first Board of Directors (BOD) meeting each semester to be passed or amended.

The GSU is run by a Board of Directors consisting of the GSU Executive, a student representative from every department and school having a graduate programme, and those graduate students who sit on various academic councils and committees of the university. The Board meets once a month to assess executive decisions and to discuss matters of importance to graduate students. This is also a chance for graduate students to raise any concerns from individual departments and in return receive advice or suggestions on problem solving. These meetings act as the main line of communication between the Executive and the general graduate student population. For this reason, the GSU needs an active and interested Board of Directors, without which the GSU would be ineffective.

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES UNIVERSITY TRAINING PLANS

Selected students may qualify for financial assistance through these Canadian Armed Forces University Training Plans: The Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP), The Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP-Coop, M.U.N. only), the Dental Officer Training Plan (DOTP), the Medical Officer Training Plan (MOTP), and the Reserve Entry Scheme: Officers (RESOP).

FIREARMS ON CAMPUS

Students are reminded that firearms (including air-rifles, air-guns and sling shots) may not be brought into, or used in, any part of the University except the rifle range.

STUDENT HOUSING

NOTE: It is the personal responsibility of each student to locate accommodation on or off the campus. The University will provide such assistance as it can through the Student Housing Office. Accommodation on campus is available at Paton College and Burton's Pond Apartments.

For good cause, the University reserves the right to refuse admission to university housing to any individual, and to require the withdrawal of any individual who has been admitted to university housing.

PATON COLLEGE

NOTE: Offers of rooms at Paton College are conditional on students being accepted and registered at Memorial or the Fisheries and Marine Institute. Students who are not accepted to the University must notify the college officer of their intention to cancel accommodations. Paton College consists of nine residence houses and has accommodations for 882 students. There are five traditional male and female houses. Accommodations are also available in four co-ed residences.

While Student Housing oversees the operation of Paton College, all houses are administered internally by representatives of both Student Housing 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 the Senior Resident Assistant and 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 Student Housing. The Don is responsible for co-ordinating academic support programs in residence.

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 credits.

The top floor of some Paton College houses have been designated as quiet floors and stereos are not permitted 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 are less strict on quiet regulations, there are designated quiet hours for studying.

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.

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.

It is essential that individuals on the list give the Housing Office a local address and telephone number at which they can be contacted on short notice. Applications and related fees received after the assignment preference list has been filled will be returned to the sender. The College can give no assurance that a room will be available to all those on the assignment preference list; for this reason, all individuals on this list should make their own arrangements for alternate accommodation.

BURTON'S POND APARTMENTS

In addition to Paton College, Memorial operates an apartment complex at Burton's Pond on the University campus. There are four apartment buildings for single students: Guy, Gilbert, Cartier and Cabot Courts. Fifteen two-bedroom family units are contained in Baltimore Court, and there is a service building - Corte Real Court containing a laundry centre, students' mail boxes, and housing office for Burton's Pond Apartments. As spaces are limited, demand is high, and spaces are allotted on a first come first served basis, students are encouraged to apply early. Each apartment unit in the four "single students" buildings is occupied by four students, each of whom has a private bedroom and shares the kitchen, living room and bathroom. There is a reserved block of apartments for Graduate Students who will be restricted to this area. Each student is required to sign a lease for the partial occupancy of an apartment.

Residence in the apartments is limited to students of 19 years of age or over who have a minimum of thirty university course credit hours. The four residences can provide accommodation for 512 students. Once this accommodation has been assigned, applicants to a maximum of 100 males and 100 females who cannot be offered accommodation at the time will be placed on a waiting list. Baltimore Court has 15 units, and these will also be let under a lease agreement. Each apartment contains a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The second bedroom is designed for one child. All apartments in Baltimore are assigned on a priority basis. Check with office for details. An application fee of $20.00 payable by money order or certified cheque for three consecutive semesters must be enclosed with each application.

C-CORE is a not for profit, incorporated research organization of Memorial University of Newfoundland. Funded by industry and government, the Centre undertakes research and development that contributes to the safe and economic development of Canada's ocean related resources. C-CORE educates and trains engineers and scientists to work in the offshore; identifies impediments to offshore resource development; and contributes to the economic development of Newfoundland and Labrador as a centre for cold ocean engineering through the transfer of technology to the private sector.

C-CORE has six main research thrusts: Ice Engineering, Remote Sensing, Seabed Geophysics, Geotechnical Engineering, Space Systems and Applications and Intelligent Systems. The Centre develops its research priorities in consultation with industry and government to reflect their changing needs. C-CORE's research work is strongly experimental. A multidisciplinary team of researchers has been built up whose expertise includes engineering, acoustics, geology, geophysics, mining, electronics, remote sensing and computer science. Graduate and undergraduate students participate in the Centre's programs.

C-CORE is located in the Captain Robert A. Bartlett Building adjacent to the S.J. Carew Building. The Centre works in very close co-operation with other sectors of the University and particularly with the members of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The Centre's mandate includes a contribution to the education and development of people who will become competent to work in the ocean environment.

C-CORE was established in 1975 by Memorial University of Newfoundland, with the initial financial support of the Devonian Group of Charitable Foundations of Calgary. The Associates of C-CORE, industry and government agencies in Canada and internationally, support the work of the Centre through contracts, grants and contributions. The Associates meet annually to review progress and to help shape future research programs.

The Board of Directors is charged with responsibility for the funding, research activities and policy direction of C-CORE. Its members, who are appointed by the President of Memorial University, are drawn from industry, government and Memorial University.

To keep others informed of its activities, the "C-CORE News" is published periodically. C-CORE operates the Ocean Engineering Information Centre (OEIC). Located in the Captain Robert A. Bartlett Building, the OEIC has a special collection of ocean engineering material and provides an information service to C-CORE and other researchers as well as to the offshore industry.

C-CORE is prepared to award graduate fellowships in Ocean Engineering and Marine Geoscience, each valued at up to $15,000, to develop and encourage expertise in cold ocean research (see section on Scholarships and Awards for details).

RESEARCH GROUP

The Centre draws on the research expertise and talent of faculty members in the Department of Earth Sciences as well as other specialists inside and external to Memorial. For a complete listing of faculty, see Earth Sciences entry, under Faculty of Science.

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

The Centre for Earth Resources Research was established in 1983 to provide for the co-ordination and promotion of earth resources research and associated work related to the origin, discovery, development, exploitation and environment aspects of earth resources.

The Centre promotes, initiates, and co-ordinates research within the earth resources disciplines on the domestic and international scenes. Researchers interact, when appropriate, with the industrial and government sectors and introduce other organizations to the potential benefits of further research and development in earth resources.

The special facilities of the Centre complement the development of graduate and undergraduate programmes in earth sciences and related disciplines at Memorial University of Newfoundland. A further function of the Centre is to contribute to the training of people competent in solving earth resources problems and to encourage personnel exchanges with industry and government.

The Alexander Murray Building which opened in 1990 houses the Department of Earth Sciences and the Centre, and has laboratories for teaching and basic and targeted (contract) research.

ORGANIZATION

The Centre is an integral part of the Department of Earth Sciences. The active research of faculty members within, and those cross-appointed to the Department, contributes to programmes in the Centre. Increasing collaboration is under way with government and industry in research projects that emphasize earth resources. The work of the Centre addresses problems and opportunities related to mineral resources, petroleum resources, exploration technology, environmental geoscience, and generic research.

The Advisory Board provides advice and guidance particularly on the areas of research appropriate for the Centre and identifies sources of support for the research.

The Centre works closely with other local, domestic, and international research institutes. The Centre for Cold Ocean Resources Engineering, the Ocean Sciences Centre (formerly MSRL and NICOS) and the NRC Institute for Marine Dynamics, as well as the Institute for Fisheries and Marine Technology, the department of Natural Resources and the federal Fisheries and Oceans Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Laboratory are some local organizations with which CERR can interact.

CENTRE FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS STUDIES

Director: Blair Winsor
International Exchange Coordinator: Susan Vaughan

The Centre for International Business Studies (CIBS) was established by the Faculty of Business Administration in 1994 to help Newfoundland businesses enter the international marketplace. The centre also facilitates international exchanges for students and faculty and provides them with the opportunity to research issues in international business and trade.

The centre works with local businesses to enhance their effectiveness within the international business community, and most particularly with European Community countries. Staff at the centre match skills and programmes within the Faculty of Business Administration with a company's needs.

The Centre for International Business Studies develops international student and faculty exchanges which allow participants to gain experience in foreign business practices and develop international contacts. The exchanges also allow foreign students to study in Newfoundland. The faculty's list of international exchange sites includes universities in France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Ireland.

CENTRE FOR MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT

Director: Dr. Lanita S. Carter

Manager: Bill Morrissey

Administrative Secretary: Jackie Collins

Secretary-Receptionist: Maureen Stapleton

The Centre for Management Development (CMD) was established within the Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial University in 1980. Its mission is to facilitate excellence in human resource performance and development by working with organizations to determine their specific needs, and to arrange for the delivery of products or programmes which best meet these needs.

The CMD acts as an intermediary between the client and the available sources of human resource development expertise. The focus of our efforts, and our principal responsibility, is the monitoring and maintenance of quality throughout the human resource development process from design through delivery and follow-up. We do not maintain our own permanent programme delivery staff.

The majority of the Centre for Management Development's work is done for a group of client organizations which maintain membership in the CMD Consortium. Consortium members meet regularly with the CMD to discuss current and emerging human resource development needs in their organizations, to provide input on programme design, and to jointly participate in programmes for cost-effective sharing of information. The Centre for Management Development also works with a variety of other organizational clients from both the private and public sectors, including professional and industry associations and not-for profit agencies and groups. In addition, it continues to offer a range of public programmes and services throughout the year.

Each year the CMD runs an Executive Development Programme (EDP), presenting participants with practical leading edge management techniques that focus on organizational success, effective performance, quality and competitiveness. Reflecting the global nature of business in the 1990s and the CMD's aim to establish a mid-Atlantic presence in human resource development, faculty for the EDP have included facilitators from across North America and Europe.

The Centre for Management Development's state-of-the-art facilities are located on the fourth floor of the Faculty of Business Administration building at Memorial University and include various styles of classrooms, work areas, dining facilities, and participant lounge.

For information concerning the CMD's programmes and activities, either call (709) 737-7977, or fax (709) 737-7999.

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 Henrietta Harvey Building and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 2 p.m - 4:30 p.m. 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 was established in 1969 with the initial financial support of the National Research Council of Canada through a negotiated development grant. This Centre became a focus of the effort to establish Ocean Engineering as a new research and educational field in Canada. Today Memorial University is the only university in Canada that offers the B.Eng. degree in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering and the M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Ocean Engineering.

The Centre is involved in research, development and consulting with application to most aspects of ocean engineering, including the offshore and naval architecture industries. Scale model experiments, numerical modelling, software development and structural testing are some of the activities within the Centre. Areas of research include marine hydrodynamics and wave structure interaction; sea ice mechanics, iceberg and ice structure interaction; risk analysis in offshore systems; naval architectural aspects including vessel motions, propulsion and small craft problems; ocean monitoring, acoustics, geotechnology and instrumentation. In house facilities include a 58m towing/wave tank, structures laboratory, cold rooms as well as a variety of smaller equipment. Access is available, through a Memorandum of Understanding, to the international class facilities of the Institute for Marine Dynamics of the National Research Council of Canada.

ORGANIZATION

The Centre is an integral part of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The active research and contract work of the faculty members within, and those cross-appointed to the Faculty, forms the basis of the programmes in the Centre.

The Centre has close ties with the Centre for Cold Ocean Resources Engineering (C-CORE) in the form of joint appointments of faculty, and graduate students who are holders of C-CORE Fellowships. The Centre works with other marine research units of the University such as the Ocean Sciences Centre and the Newfoundland and Labrador Institute of Fisheries and Marine Technology. Equally close relations are maintained with the Institute for Marine Dynamics (IMD) of the National Research Council of Canada (on campus). Several ocean related departments of the provincial and federal governments have regular interaction with the Ocean Engineering Research Centre.

In 1995 the Centre took over the Secretariat of the Engineering Committee on Oceanic Resources, ECOR. The Director of the OERC acts as the Executive Secretary of ECOR. ECOR's purpose is to provide an international focus and forum for engineering activities and interests in ocean technology and associated fields; and to further international engineering initiatives pertaining to the management and exploitation of oceanic resources. Membership in ECOR is in the form of one national committee per country, through a group recognised in that country as providing the national focus for professional engineering in marine affairs.

A central element in Memorial's plan to become one of the world's leading marine universities, the Ocean Sciences Centre was formed in April, 1988, by the union of the Marine Sciences Research Laboratory (MSRL) and the Newfoundland Institute for Cold Ocean Sciences (NICOS). An ocean sciences research unit within the Faculty of Science, the Ocean Sciences Centre is staffed by almost 40 professional scientists, many of whom are cross-appointed faculty from University departments. The main laboratories, over 4000m2 in total, are located directly on the North Atlantic Ocean at Logy Bay, approximately 9.6 kilometers from the main campus, with other smaller labs at various locations elsewhere. The Centre's small boat, the Karl & Jackie, is berthed at Long Pond on Conception Bay and is used in field investigations.

The Ocean Sciences Centre research programs take advantage of the ocean features that make the Newfoundland region a unique and important part of the world's oceans. These include the Labrador Current and sea ice and icebergs (which collectively exercise a major impact on global climate and weather), some of the world's most productive fishing grounds and strategically important offshore resources. The region encompasses areas of broad-scale active mixing between cold and warm ocean waters, many rivers with very low nutrient and sediment loads, very deep ocean areas close to land, large fjord systems, and direct access to ice-covered oceans and the Arctic. The fauna contains animals with unique cold ocean adaptations, important marine mammal populations and some of the largest seabird colonies remaining in the world.

Memorial's P.J. Gardiner Institute was the first small business consulting centre to be established within a Canadian university. The objective of the institute is to assist in the economic development of the province through teaching, counselling and research activities.

In addition to assisting in the development of small business management and entrepreneurship courses given at the graduate and undergraduate levels at Memorial 's Faculty of Business Administration, the P.J. Gardiner Institute frequently co-operates with provincial and federal levels of government in the implementation of entrepreneurial initiatives. Ongoing projects include the provision of training and resource material to Newfoundland's high school enterprise education teachers and the delivery of a national entrepreneur training programme.

The P.J. Gardiner Institute also provides assistance to small business owners through counselling services which include business planning, market research and product development. As well, the institute supports faculty research activities which focus on small business issues, and maintains a steady involvement in emerging small business initiatives in Atlantic Canada.

The P.J. Gardiner Institute presents the annual Newfoundland and Labrador Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
