In October, Memorial announced it is seeking input on a revised draft of the RIIG Policy. Individuals are encouraged to provide feedback until the end of the year.

In May 2022 the university approved a two-phased approach to review the policy. The first phase concluded this March. During phase two, members of the university and wider communities can review the draft policy before it is brought to the President’s Executive Council, Senate and the Board of Regents for approval.
