Dear students, employees and the Humber community,

As many of you are aware, we recently had a period of several days in which more than 200 members of our community, mostly students at the North Campus residence, were ill with norovirus. The health and wellbeing of our campus is always our highest priority, and we are glad to hear that those who were affected are reporting that they are feeling better.

As I’ve said on many occasions, Humber College is proud of the diversity of our institution, led by our students and employees. Our community reflects Canada and the world and we are impacted by events that take place around the globe.

It has been a difficult weekend for many people, and I would like to begin this week by affirming our commitment as a college to valuing diversity, inclusion and respect.

The Humber community is deeply saddened by the shooting at a Quebec City mosque yesterday, and we stand with...

Here at Humber, we strive to make sure that giving back and being a strong community partner is reflected in everything we do.

With National Philanthropy Day just gone by (November 15), it got me thinking about how lucky we are to have generous donors that support our students.

It was with that in mind that we designed Gratitude Hall, a new space at North campus that recognizes the more than 350 donors who have collectively given millions to the college since it opened in 1967. It is also...
