The Office of Public Engagement (OPE) reports to the President, and is tasked with supporting the implementation of Memorial University of Newfoundland's Public Engagement Framework by providing supports for public engagement activities, locally, nationally and internationally. The OPE also provides leadership and supports for a range of public engagement-related units and activities within the University and is the lead on strategic external relations for the University. ‘Public Engagement’ at the University encompasses collaborations between people and groups within the University and people and groups external to the University – i.e., the ”public” – that further the mission of Memorial University of Newfoundland. Drawing on the knowledge and resources brought by all involved, public engagement involves mutual respect, mutual contributions and mutual benefits for all participants.
