Celebrating 100 Years of Excellence

This year Memorial University’s Faculty of Education is celebrating 100 years of excellence, as teacher education reaches a significant milestone in the province.

One hundred years ago, a small teachers’ training school or what was then known as a normal school, was established. The school opened in 1921 with a full-time teaching staff of six professors supporting an initial cohort of 55 students. The old monitorial system in use for half a century was gone, replaced by a new professional program of study.

The normal school existed as a separate unit for three years. In 1924 it was moved into a new facility that would later become Memorial University College.

Since then, more than 30,000 graduates have walked through our doors. That's something worth celebrating!
