CHANGE LAB IS NOT RUNNING FALL 2021 OR SPRING 2022.

Capstones are going ‘under construction’. Our goal is to re-evaluate and make the courses even better than they already were by updating the curriculum, introducing new mentors, and providing new opportunities! We have some truly fantastic Entrepreneurship and Innovation courses available for enrollment this fall. 

If you’re looking for a capstone course or a similar experiential entrepreneurship course, please check out Technology Entrepreneruship @ SFU and BUS 477 – Start-up Experience.


Change Lab

Change Lab is a once-in-a-degree experiential learning program open to students from all faculties. Please see Change Lab | RADIUS SFU for full information.

Undergraduate students from a variety of academic backgrounds work together in interdisciplinary teams to investigate a real social, economic, and environmental challenge facing our local community. Together, they build a sustainable intervention to creatively respond to it and present their ideas to community influencers – all in just 13 weeks.

In this immersive experience, students learn about the core practices of social innovation, human-centered design, entrepreneurship. Change Lab remains a popular program for students to step outside of the classroom and their comfort zones to discover what it means to create social change.


Curious about what other students had to say about the experience? Check out RADIUS’ Testimonials page to find out!

The highlight of my academic career. I have learned so much that I otherwise would have missed if it was just a standard class… I am forever grateful for this experience- the mentorship, the content and the opportunity to connect with community leaders and members.
