About The Blundon Centre
The Glenn Roy Blundon Centre was established at Memorial University in February 1992, and is dedicated to the memory of Glenn Roy Blundon, a former Memorial student and resident of Bay de Verde, Newfoundland and Labrador. Glenn is remembered for his advocacy, leadership and commitment to equality and accessibility issues.
The mission of the Blundon Centre is to provide and coordinate programs and services that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential and to increase awareness of inclusive values among all members of the university community. We assist students by facilitating access to information, services, and campus facilities in accordance with the university's Policy on Accommodations for Students with Disabilities. The Centre carries out its mission in collaboration with faculty, staff, and students at Memorial University and off-campus agencies, including disability community organizations.
The Centre serves prospective and current students on the university's St. John's Campus whose disabilities involve conditions affecting mobility, vision, hearing, learning (disabilities), chronic illnesses, or mental health. Support is also provided to students with documented temporary illnesses and injuries.
