Campus Course Network


The Campus Course Network is where CityLAB works with already existing courses at McMaster, Mohawk, and Redeemer, which involve hands-on, project-based opportunities for students to engage with their city. CityLAB’s goal is to meaningfully integrate coursework towards the City’s strategic priorities. By joining the network, faculty are connected with passionate change-makers and exposed to a thriving community of educators, researchers, and city staff who are all working to make Hamilton a better place.

Example Projects

  1. Leadership in Sustainability – working with CityHousing to identify barriers to residents accessing wellness programming

  2. Leadership in Sustainability – developing programming with secondary school students to engage young people in active travel to school

  3. Accessible Media Production – students teaching city staff about AODA compliance and creating guidelines for accessibility standards

  4. Construction and Building Systems – students working with CityHousing to retrofit accessible and sustainable units
