    Memorial University president Dr. Vianne Timmons kicked off a cross-island tour visiting people and places in communities across the province.

    The tour, originally scheduled for April, was postponed resulting from the global pandemic and the closure of all Memorial campuses.

    Dr. Timmons began in Corner Brook at Grenfell Campus where she toured campus visiting facilities and meeting researchers, faculty and staff. While in the city, she met with municipal and community leaders, Indigenous groups, community partners, government representatives, and research facilities.  Her tour will continue through western Newfoundland in the coming days visiting the Stephenville and Northern Peninsula areas.

    As her tour progresses, Dr. Timmons will find herself in Labrador visiting partners of the Labrador Institute, and attending meetings in central Newfoundland as she makes her way back to St. John’s next month.


    Caption: Louise McGillis, associate university librarian with Grenfell Campus, showed Dr. Timmons The Abbie Table, a celebration of life in rural Newfoundland a generation ago, by Andy Jones. Hosted in the Ferriss Hodgett Library, the Abbie Table is inspired by Abbie Whiffen, a grandmother who wrote an essay to tell her granddaughter what life was like in Trinity Bay in the mid-1900s.
