Welcome to the Harris Centre, Memorial University’s hub for public policy and regional development issues.

We link Memorial researchers with groups all over Newfoundland and Labrador, supporting active community engagement throughout the research process.

Working with all units at Memorial, we build connections, encourage informed debate and support collaboration, enhancing the University and the Province through mutually beneficial partnerships.


Event Design for Long-term Change

What is the role of emotional knowledge in event design and strategic planning? Harris Centre staff Taylor Stocks will deliver a workshop on embodied emotional knowledge in event design.

This workshop is made possible by funding provided by Engage Memorial.
