New name for Grenfell

September 10, 2010

Memorial University's board of regents has accepted a recommendation to change the name of Sir Wilfred Grenfell College to Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland. The recommendation was based on a report from a task force committee that spent the spring and summer conducting consultations and research on a new name for the campus. Last December, the Newfoundland and Labrador government announced new measures of autonomy for Grenfell, including a suggestion that its name be changed to more clearly reflect its status as an institution offering university education.
