The Purpose Lab exists as the epicentre of student driven social innovation on Laurier’s Waterloo campus. The world’s most complex issues require interdisciplinary collaboration. The Purpose Lab is where students from all faculties and years can come to collaborate and ideate their passions and interests. Laurier’s mission is to inspire lives of leadership and purpose; the Purpose Lab and Social Innovation and Venture Creation is bringing that mission to life. The Purpose Lab was made possible from generous donations from both the Wilfrid Laurier University Alumni Association and the Student Life Levy Fund.
