In 2014, Memorial University of Newfoundland established the WW100 program to recognize the unique origin of the university as a living memorial. The main effort of the WW100 program was to encourage and empower the university community with grants for First World War-related projects. Seventy-nine projects were funded. These projects were academic, commemorative or archival in nature. The capstone of the WW100 program will be the Living Memorial Conference from June 22 – 23, 2019 at the Signal Hill Campus.
