A co-founder of the Students for a Democratic University (SDU), Jim Harding was a central figure in the unrest and activism that made the new Simon Fraser University campus newsworthy in the late 1960s and early 1970s. While receiving his diploma, Harding once surprised the crusty SFU chancellor Gordon Shrum by kissing his shoes. Harding was not interviewed for Hugh Johnston's period history, Radical Campus: Making Simon Fraser University (D&M 2005).

Harding is Adjunct Professor of Justice Studies, past Director of Prairie Justice Research Consortium, and past Director and Professor of the School of Human Justice at the University of Regina. He is also past Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Waterloo, and past Professor of Psychology at Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario.
