The Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development is tasked with coordinating and facilitating the University’s educational, research and outreach activities in the areas of regional policy and development. The Harris Centre works with all faculty, staff, and students as well as all Units within the University and serves as a reliable point of access for all stakeholders seeking to work with the University in activities related to regional policy and development. The Centre interprets regional as all communities and regions in Newfoundland and Labrador, and policy and development includes all issues that affect the ability of communities and regions to be prosperous and sustainable. The Harris Centre seeks to connect faculty, staff and students with opportunity for practical application in Newfoundland and Labrador while representing the integrity and independence of University research, teaching and outreach. The Centre also provides support for communications, operations, and administration to the Office of Public Engagement and its reporting units.
