Building connections and fostering collaborations is what the Harris Centre is all about — a bridge between the university and the community.
Our mission is to encourage informed regional policy and development in Newfoundland and Labrador by supporting communication and collaboration between Memorial University and the people of this province.
We have two primary goals that influence all of our various activities: to assist in the responsible development of the economy and society of Newfoundland and Labrador, and to stimulate informed discussion of important provincial issues.
We want to make sure that Newfoundland and Labrador is a vibrant democracy, one full of informed citizens that are actively engaged in realizing a prosperous society.
To help achieve this, we facilitate connections, encourage research, bring people together and mobilize knowledge.
