From October 28th, 2021, to November 8th, 653 students at Memorial University of Newfoundland participated in a poll on president Vianne Timmons’s leadership.

Of the 653 respondents, 87 (13.32 percent) voted Yes they support Timmons’s leadership, and 566 (86.68 percent) voted No.

Students participated from the St. John’s Campus, Marine Institute, and Grenfell Campus. There were undergraduate students, master’s students, and Ph.D. students who voted. Students voted from most faculties including Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Applied Science, Human Kinetics and Recreation, Humanities and Social Sciences, Music, Nursing, Pharmacy, Science, and Social Work.

In total, 572 students provided an answer asking for their program of study. Some students stated their faculty and others their specific program. Students in over 70 programs voted.

503 students provided an answer to the question asking their name. The majority either provided both their first name and last name or just their first name.

The first question asked if the participant is currently a MUN student and was used to filter out those who are not, as the purpose of the poll was to survey the student body.
