The Labrador Institute is a multi-disciplinary administrative unit of Memorial University with responsibility for delivery of academic initiatives such as research and education. The institute accomplishes much of its mission and mandate through collaboration with other units of Memorial University and partner groups in Labrador and abroad.

The Institute also has a substantial outreach function which provides university expertise to Labrador people for less formal, community-driven projects and requests, often dealing with language retention, culture and heritage.
