    Dear all,

    The last week has been an extraordinary one for Grenfell and all Memorial University Campuses, just as it has been for everyone across the province, and far more broadly.

    I want to express profound appreciation to everyone on Campus for the way that you've responded during this very difficult and stressful time. I know that for many, your concerns extend beyond your studies to the health and well-being of family and friends. I hope that you are all coping well; the support you are providing to one another has been extremely helpful.

    As our students know, professors have demonstrated tremendous flexibility, innovation and support to help those they teach successfully complete the academic term. All our staff, in every capacity, have contributed in innumerable ways to make this unprecedented transition work in a timely and effective manner.

    Students, if any of you require help, please reach out to your professors, to those running our academic schools, to our campus counsellor, to those managing our various departments, or to me – we are all here ready to provide the support you need. You can find a list of contacts at

    I also want to express particular appreciation to our students for adjusting, both quickly and in so many ways, to this new, and extraordinary, reality. In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to you to provide – depending on your circumstances - information on admissions, registration, and graduation.

    At Grenfell, we pride ourselves on being a supportive, tight-knit community, and, as such, we will be in contact and available to you.

    We can all take tremendous pride in the way in which everyone at Grenfell has responded. I look forward to the time when I can welcome everyone back to Campus and to express my gratitude in person.

    Take care, be well, and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

    Yours sincerely

    Jeff Keshen
