At the Innovation Hub, we support meaningful student employment.


For us, student employment matters. By using a consultancy model to run our projects, we create a space that mirrors real-world agencies in a positive, supportive way. Joining our team means building community, ideating in a collaborative setting and developing skills for success. Over the past few years, we’ve seen countless students grow within and beyond their role at the iHub. Here’s what some of our current and past team members have to say about their experience:

“I learned navigating change. that came in multiple forms; change in teammates, change in pace, and even change in mindset when it comes to designing.”

The core of the Innovation Hub experience is student-driven, meaning we prioritize cultivating an environment where students can support other students and gain hands-on experience by tackling real wicked problems affecting their peers today. In this supportive space, we live out our anti-oppression, accessibility and inclusion commitments and support the voices of students from equity-deserving communities.


The peer-to-peer approach we use in our research is built into the way we work. As a student working with students, you have a valuable chance to connect, create, and collaborate with like-minded peers.
