Memorial University of Newfoundland, also known as Memorial University or MUN (), is a multi-campus, multidisciplinary university dedicated to creativity, innovation, and excellence in teaching and learning, research, scholarship, and public engagement.
Ranked as one of the top comprehensive universities in Canada, Memorial offers a wide-range of certificate, diploma, undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs, complemented by extensive online courses and degrees. Memorial's five campuses, located in St. John's and Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Harlow, Essex, United Kingdom, are served by more than 1,300 faculty and 2,400 staff members.
As a community of students and scholars from all over the world, including more than 18,000 students from nearly 100 countries, and almost 90,000 alumni worldwide, Memorial is one of the largest universities in Atlantic Canada. More than 40 per cent of Memorial's research and development is related to oceans, much of which overlaps with teaching and learning initiatives, and public engagement opportunities. Memorial's cold ocean and Arctic expertise is wide-ranging, with deep strengths in all faculties, including science, engineering, education, medicine and the humanities and social sciences.
As Newfoundland and Labrador's only university, Memorial has a special obligation to the people of the province. Founded in 1925 as a living memorial to the residents who lost their lives during active service in the First World War and subsequent conflicts, Memorial University serves to honour that great sacrifice through education, research, and public engagement.
