Mission and Mandate

In July 2008, the Memorial Board of Regents approved a revised mission and mandate for the Labrador Institute. It is the mission of the Labrador Institute to bring the needs and interests of Labradorians to the University, and to facilitate actions that will bring the capacities of the University to bear on these needs and interests.  We celebrate our relationship with Labrador through our core values of collaboration, outreach, research and education.

The current planning and initiatives of the Labrador Institute are guided by the LI Mission and Mandate, Memorial University’s Research Strategy Framework, Public Engagement Framework and Teaching and Learning Framework, and the Labrador Post Secondary Needs Assessment. Other important reference points include: (a) the Provincial Northern Strategic Plan, (b) the White Paper on Public Postsecondary Education, and (c) Memorial’s Aboriginal Initiatives Task Force.
