Memorial's Report to the Community 2022

Dec 21st, 2022


WE TRIED SOMETHING DIFFERENT this year for Memorial’s Report to the Community.

Memorial+U brought together our six campuses for live, online reports from each campus, including Harlow, U.K., and our newest one in Labrador.

Community members were invited to our campuses as we celebrated our university and demonstrated our clear commitment to community. A community can be many things: inmates at His Majesty’s Penitentiary who created the Phoenix Garden with volunteers from Memorial; the team at the Pye Centre in Labrador who harvested and donated 2,700 pounds of turnips and 800 pounds of potatoes throughout Labrador – fresh, free local food for those who need it the most; or the first cohort of nursing students to study in Grand Falls-Windsor.

What is a community? It’s friends helping friends. It’s everyone working together and holding each other up. It’s using your skills and knowledge to make your community a better place.
