UNB Remembers

Lest we forget

This year marks the 8th annual UNB Remembers ceremony, and we are thrilled to see how much the ceremony has grown and changed while continuing to be an important opportunity for our university community to come together in reflection.

This year, as we are physically distant from each other, it can be more difficult to remember the threads that tie our community together. We hope that this year’s UNB Remembers reflections will help remind us of the long history our community shares. Our community has weathered many difficult periods in history and we will continue to do so.

We will continue to support students, faculty, and staff, and recognize and remember that while we all come from many different places, backgrounds, and experiences, each of us enrich this community. Through wars, pandemics, and throughout history, we have always been and will always be Proudly UNB.

A statement from UNB’s president

Paul Mazerolle, President and Vice-Chancellor

UNB Remembers is a time for us to come together in remembrance over the many important contributions that members of our community have made, both through service and sacrifice. The pandemic has provided us with the opportunity to think of new ways to continue with this tradition, but from a distance. I hope that as members of our community read the following reflections, we can keep them in our memory when we pause and honour those who have been affected by war, past or present.

At UNB, we are proud of our people — our students, faculty, staff and alumni — and we want to share their stories. UNB Remembers is an important tradition that allows us to recognize the causes and consequences of war, while thinking about its impacts on the lives of people across the globe. Lest we forget.
