Eliminate barriers through partnerships

Strategic-Plan-Priority-PartnershipsWe build partnerships to offer experiential learning opportunities that allow us to connect our students to the global community.

In our next phase, we are expanding our scale of influence by partnering with private and public businesses, other faculties at Memorial, and provincial and federal governments to create a global network and expand educational and career opportunities for our students. Through these partnerships, we can be part of our community – locally and globally – while also preparing students to make significant contributions to the world around them.

Our expanding network broadens and enriches research possibilities as well as opportunities to continue undertaking cutting-edge research to help take our students and our society to the next level.
