Humber College’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan

In 2017-2018, Humber set out to define its priorities for the next 5 years. More than 650 students participated in the college wide consultation process. Here’s what they told us:

  • We want to be highly competitive in the workforce
  • We want to develop networks with potential employers
  • We want a campus that supports our wellbeing

Our new strategic plan addresses these student needs by focusing the plan on a new vision and mission and eight priorities:


Transforming postsecondary education through global, polytechnic leadership.


Humber develops global citizens with the knowledge and skills to lead and innovate.

1. Preparing Career-Ready Citizens

Priority: Transform education by creating opportunities for all students to participate in meaningful experiential learning, with a focus on work-integrated learning and applied research.

Humber will ensure every student graduates with the key skills for success in a competitive and global workforce.  Humber will enhance experiential learning, including work opportunities and applied research and ensure students are trained in new digital technologies. 

Priority: Establish strong, sustainable collaborations with industry, community, international and alumni partners that create unique learning experiences for our students and reciprocal benefits for our partners.

Humber will enhance support to its industry and community partners who provide its students with work-related opportunities.

2. Creating Accessible Education

Priority: Humber will lead in the development of programs, credentials and pathways that enhance student choice, mobility and access to higher education.

Humber will create more opportunities for students to transfer between programs and offer a unique mix of credential and non-credential programs to meet students’ educational and employment goals.

Humber will utilize new technologies that adapt to students learning needs.

To fulfill its goal of being the healthiest campus in Canada, Humber will sign on to the Okanagan Charter and develop a campus community that is focused on well-being.

Priority: Continue to build a diverse and inclusive community of exceptional students, faculty and staff.

Humber’s employees will be highly talented, engaged and motivated ambassadors that will reflect the diversity of its students.
