Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador is a WIL partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER).

Memorial University is Newfoundland and Labrador’s only university. Its mission is to be an inclusive community dedicated to innovation and excellence in teaching and learning, research, scholarship, creative activity, service and public engagement. Memorial welcomes and supports students and scholars from all over the world and contributes knowledge and expertise locally, nationally and internationally.

This partnership between BHER and Memorial University of Newfoundland & Labrador will create 250 work-integrated learning opportunities for undergraduate students in the 2021-2022 academic year through micro-placements. In collaboration with industry organizations across the province, this endeavour will target underrepresented groups such as equity-deserving students, rural, remote or Northern communities, Indigenous and international students as well as entrepreneurial and small and medium enterprises.
