Apply – SIR

Applications for the Fall 2023 Semester in residence are now closed

Apply by June 12, 2023 at 11:59 PM Apply Now

CityLAB Semester in Residence (CMTYENGA 4A06 & 4A09) is a 15-unit course designed for passionate, motivated, and enthusiastic students. If you want to learn from the community, apply your studies to make change, and expand your personal and professional networks, then this is the course for you!

This year our theme—How might we build a climate resilient future?—asks us to bring a critical lens to our explorations, discussions, and project work. Throughout CityLAB SIR, students will work in alignment with the City of Hamilton’s new climate mitigation and adaptation and alongside leaders within the City of Hamilton and the Hamilton community to think critically about what a climate resilient future might look like in Hamilton. Upper year students from all faculties are encouraged to apply!
