Hubs for Clubs are networks for like-minded groups to connect to other groups as well as a faculty/staff/department Hub Host. Hubs are designed to encourage dialogues and inspire opportunities for networking and collaboration.

The St. George Campus is home to over 600 individual campus organizations and the Hub will allow groups to know about the various projects and resources other student organizations and services have. Through dialogue and sharing, student organizations will identify areas for collaboration, working together and sharing the valuable resources on campus.
