NL proposes amendments to Memorial University Act


Newfoundland and Labrador Minister of Education Dr John Haggie has proposed amendments to the Memorial University Act in the provincial House of Assembly. The proposal includes changing the governance structure of Memorial’s Board of Regents to represent teaching staff, incorporating gender-neutral language into the act, and updating the act’s references to other legislation. “For the first time in Memorial University history, faculty will have representation on the Board of Regents,” said Haggie. “We made this commitment to the Memorial University of Newfoundland Faculty Association during their recent strike action, and if passed, these proposed amendments will allow this to happen without delay.”
