A Message from President Chris Whitaker

Welcome to Humber. We’re excited for you to learn more about our dynamic, friendly and dedicated community.

Whether you are entering postsecondary studies directly from high school or after working for a period of time, we are committed to your success. Our wide range of credentials, which include bachelor’s degrees, diplomas, certificates, graduate certificates and apprenticeship programs, allow you to choose a program that’s best suited to your specific needs. Every program is designed with input from industry experts to ensure a relevant learning experience. You'll also learn from award-winning faculty who are focused on your personal and academic success.

When I’m asked what makes Humber special, my response is simple. First, the quality of our faculty, and second, the broad spectrum of programs we offer—each designed to meet the needs and career interests of our students. As a result, our faculty and students excel in business, applied technology, media studies, liberal arts and sciences, social and community services, health sciences, hospitality, recreation and lifestyle promotion, and creative and performing arts.

In addition, Humber offers a vibrant campus life featuring top varsity teams, leading-edge facilities and student support services to help our students achieve their personal, educational and professional goals.

Most importantly, our students demonstrate success after they graduate. Our alumni have made outstanding achievements in all walks of life.

The Humber and Guelph-Humber community has 27,000 full-time and 56,000 continuing education registrants across three campuses. Our students, faculty and staff contribute to our local communities and there are many volunteer opportunities and ways that we celebrate Humber’s diversity. We maintain an international focus in our curriculum and we are currently home to international students from more than 130 countries. We offer a growing number of study-abroad options and we work in partnership with national and internationally based institutions.

I encourage you to learn more about what Humber has to offer by browsing our website, reading our publications or touring our campuses. I hope you find the opportunity that you’re looking for here, and I look forward to seeing you on campus.
