There are great things happening at Memorial University and it is an exciting time to be a part of it.
In the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), we are committed to enabling the university to be recognized as one of the most distinguished public universities in Canada through supporting excellence in education, scholarship and student experience. An important role of the office is to align activities, operations, budget, policies, and administrative structures with the academic mission, strategic priorities and plans, and our frameworks Teaching and Learning, Research and Public Engagement.
It is innovation and a forward thinking approach that keeps Memorial University on the path to distinction as we continue to fulfill our commitments to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Memorial’s Board of Regents approved the Enrolment Plan 2020 and the Strategic Research Intensity Plan 2014-20, a set of initiatives that will launch forth new and innovative recommendations to help the university become one of the most graduate-intensive and research-intensive universities in Canada by the end of 2020-21.
A new steering committee, commissioned by the provost and vice-president (academic), Dr. David Wardlaw, will lead consultations for the development of a Strategic Internationalization Plan. The steering committee and the process for creating the plan were approved by the Vice-Presidents Council at a meeting on May 26, 2014.
