Every HUBBUB we welcome three expert judges (one City staff + one faculty + one CityStudio alum) to explore the showcase and select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place projects to be celebrated at the end of the showcase. The first place team will receive a banner on their CityStudio Project Page. This semester we are proud and grateful to have the following judges:
City of Vancouver
Simon Fraser University
At CityStudio Vancouver, no one exemplifies the work we aim to do more than our champions. We truly admire these folks for their commitment to change in the City and to mentoring students. Each semester, we celebrate one City staff and one faculty member who have participated in 5 or more course collaborations. This term, we had such amazing support that we had to celebrate TWO City Staff!
These individuals are not only committed to collaborative city-building and community-engaged learning, but they also provide us with invaluable insights and feedback, allowing us to improve our process and expand our collective impact. By providing opportunities for students to gain career skills and contributing to a meaningful project, these Champions have been an integral part in helping to make Vancouver more sustainable, equitable, and joyful.

"I’ve been so grateful for the time City partners’ have contributed – having their expertise in the classroom has inspired students to put in their top effort toward creating solutions. CityStudio has opened their eyes around the linkages between health, urban planning, and transportation, and provided an opportunity for them to see how their public health lens brings insights to city-building challenges."
Each semester CityStudio Vancouver brings together City of Vancouver staff with faculty from the local post-secondary schools. Without the collaborative efforts of the following individuals we couldn’t get students into City Hall to shake things up. Thank you for all your openness and innovative work! Below you'll find the City Staff and Faculty Champions from Fall 2021.
