Why does Public Engagement matter to Memorial?

Memorial University fulfills a special obligation to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. As the province's only university, Memorial is dedicated to encouraging and supporting publicly engaged work and serving the public good, locally, nationally and internationally.

Memorial University is, and always has been, home to students and staff who make public engagement a fundamental element of their research and teaching activities. They are responsive, collaborative and respectful of the needs and contributions of “the public”, drawing on the knowledge and resources of everyone involved.

Enriched by the public's perspective and expertise, Memorial is ultimately a stronger institution, a hub of knowledge and ideas that serve the greater community.
