Laurier Students' Public Interest Research Group (LSPIRG) is an incorporated not-for-profit organization that helps to develop advocacy tools and avenues for action. We operate autonomously from the university to uniquely serve both students and community members.

We fund independent and community oriented research projects through CCRLA (The Centre for Community Research Learning and Action), provide Board and Steering Committee experience, offer many different volunteer opportunities, and work with students and community members to raise awareness on a range of social and environmental justice issues. LSPIRG is funded through membership dues, paid automatically by students via the student levy and paid voluntarily by all other community members.

LSPIRG has been operating on the Waterloo campus since 2005 and have recently opened a Brantford office as of 2016.
