The Campus

Grenfell Campus is a small, vibrant campus situated in traditional Mi’kmaw territory on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland.  Of the 1400 students studying at Grenfell, more than 20% are Indigenous, coming to Grenfell primarily from surrounding Mi’kmaw communities on the island and from Inuit and Innu communities in Labrador.  We seek to increase the number of Indigenous faculty as one of the ways to weave Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing into the fabric of the campus.  

As part of the Memorial University system, Grenfell fully participates in indigenization initiatives, including the new Strategic Framework for Indigenization, which is currently in final stages of approval.  The draft of the framework is available here:  https://www.mun.ca/indigenous/indigenous-affairs/reports/sfi.php 

The Schools

Grenfell is home to the School of Arts and Social Science, the School of Fine Arts, and the School of Science and the Environment, which are home to a variety of disciplines and robust, engaged research activity.  Grenfell Campus is particularly attractive to researchers seeking community collaborations.  Some recent Indigenous research collaborations are detailed here:  https://www.poweredbygrenfell.com/the_power_of_engaged_research.php 

Graduate Programs

Grenfell also offers opportunities for graduate supervision, through the Master of Arts in Environmental Policy, Master of Science in Boreal Ecosystems and Agriculture Sciences, Master of Fine Arts and a new PhD program in Transdisciplinary Sustainability. Information on the PhD in Transdisciplinary Sustainability is available here:  https://grenfell.mun.ca/academics-and-research/Pages/school-of-science-and-the-environment/Graduate-Programs/transdisciplinarysustainability.aspx and more information on the other graduate programs can be found here: https://www.grenfell.mun.ca/academics-and-research/Pages/graduate-programs.aspx
