In a college community as diverse as ours, we are often affected by events that happen locally, nationally and globally. And as a Humber family, what impacts some of us impacts us all.

One of my first priorities when I arrived at Humber in 2012 was to launch the process to develop the 2013-2018 strategic plan.

This week, we officially embark on our journey to...
