The Office of Public Engagement
The Office of Public Engagement provides support to Memorial's publically engaged students, faculty, staff and units. The Office will also work with Memorial's external partners and collaborators to help make Memorial's resources and expertise more accessible. The Office coordinated the development of the Public Engagement Framework, and is currently working with internal and external groups to design programs and initiatives to advance the objectives of the Framework.
The Executive Director, Public Engagement, is also responsible for the Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development (Harris Centre). The Harris Centre provides operational and communications supports to the Office of Public Engagement and the units that report to it, including the Memorial University Botanical Garden, the Newfoundland Quarterly, and the Special Advisor for Aboriginal Affairs. The Office of Public Engagement is also facilitating the development of Memorial's Battery location.
