A living memorial
The university was founded in 1925 as a living memorial to those who fought in the First World War and, later, the Second World War. Each year, a Ceremony of Remembrance is held in association with Remembrance Day.
Members of the public, students, faculty, staff, retirees and alumni are invited to attend the ceremony, which pays special tribute to the 30 former Memorial students who fought and died in the First World War and the Second World War.
