Course Collaborations

Students participating in Term-Long or Course Collaborations work as individuals or teams on a hands-on, applied project over the course of a term. These collaborations usually take place with third and fourth year students. Some projects are more complex and may require a multi-disciplinary, multi-year exploration, or might benefit from in depth research. CityStudio Research Collaborations usually involve graduate students or those in directed studies.

Engagement Collaborations

New to our showcase is our Engagement Collaborations – an innovative type of collaboration at CityStudio Vancouver. These projects come together with a lighter touch approach, meaning we have the opportunity to engage with more, sometimes more than a hundred students, for a project that invites students to reflect on and understand experiential learning from the first two years of their post-secondary education.

Our Expert Judges

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. This semester we are proud and grateful to have the following judges

Our Champions

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. In this anniversary edition, we’re celebrating three Champions who have championed CityStudio Vancouver through the years since its inception, saying YES. These individuals are not only committed to collaborative city-building and community-engaged learning but have provided us with invaluable insights and feedback, dedicating countless hours, and imagining new possibilities to expand our collective impact. These Champions have been an integral part of helping to make Vancouver more sustainable, equitable, and joyful.
