The Winter term and what’s to come

Today, we shared with students and staff an update on our plans for the Winter 2020 term.

As we have said throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus remains on the health and safety of our community and is the driving factor in our decisions around program and service delivery.

You can expect that programs will continue to be either fully online or have a mix of online learning and limited in-person components. Employees who are able to complete their work remotely will continue to do so for the Winter term. I know that staff and faculty will continue to work collaboratively both in person and online and find new ways to stay connected.

We understand that students need course-level information to make plans. In order to provide them detailed information by the end of October, we are reviewing learning outcomes of programs and courses, tracking our ongoing online and on-campus academic activities, working with industry partners to confirm plans for work-integrated learning and monitoring public health recommendations.

I know that many students are eager to return to campus and experience their Humber education in-person. Rest assured that regardless of delivery mode, all students will continue to have opportunities to pursue their career and academic goals and engage meaningfully with peers and professors using different platforms and technology.

We also want to ensure all students have the virtual student services and supports they need to be successful.

As we work through the details in the coming weeks, we will continue to share updates or new information. In the meantime, be sure to visit our Return to Campus micrositeUpdates and FAQ pages if you have questions.
