Memorial University offers a look back on the last year with the release of the 2018 President’s Report: The Memorial Effect.
A ripple of change can turn a local action today into a global impact tomorrow. Drawing inspiration from the butterfly effect in chaos theory, The Memorial Effect demonstrates how knowledge creation and knowledge sharing by Newfoundland and Labrador’s university are having widespread impacts.
As you read through this year’s report, you will learn more about how Memorial is active and engaged throughout the province and beyond. In compelling examples, community members in Norris Point, Placentia Bay, Makkovik, Baie Verte and Nunavut generously shared their stories with us, illustrating how Memorial University’s people and programs are having a tangible impact in their regions.
The report is based on fiscal year April 1, 2017-March 31, 2018 and academic year Sept. 1, 2017-Aug. 31, 2018.
