As I write this, we’ve just finished four days of convocation for the newest members of the Humber Alumni family.

This year we had 10 ceremonies and almost 9,200 graduates, 5,200 of whom attended one of the ceremonies.

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.

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