For many Canadians, our northern and ocean frontiers spark the imagination.
For researchers and students at Memorial University, the reality of being here is even more exciting.
No other university in Canada is closer to four distinct cold ocean zones, including the high Arctic. We are keenly aware that at this demanding time in history, the importance of the ever-changing North has never been more vital to our collective human success story.
We are helping to build the province, and to transfer it from a resource-based economy to a knowledge-based economy for the benefit of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Canadians as a whole.
“We are here” means we are defined by this place, which includes the weather, the geography, and the opportunities and challenges these things afford.
We are aiming to achieve best quality of life possible for where and when we are.
