A Commitment to Becoming the Healthiest Campus in Canada
Humber plans to be the healthiest campus in the country by becoming the first public college or polytechnic in Canada to adopt the Okanagan Charter. By signing the Charter, Humber is incorporating health into everyday operations, business practices and academic mandates to support students, staff and faculty. When We Are At Our Best, Our Students Can Achieve Theirs!
Striving To Be The Healthiest Campus In Canada
Chris Whitaker, President and CEO, Humber College walks us through Humber's ambitious goal of being the healthiest campus in Canada by asking the question "How Can We Be At Our Best?" Watch video >
Humber invites students to share how they are at their best on social media for a chance to win a $500 gift card to the Humber Bookstore. All social media messaging should include #WeAreAtOurBest.
Adopting the Charter is the beginning of many efforts Humber will make to fulfill the college’s commitments. There will be significant engagement over the next five years of the strategic plan, to actualize this goal.
As part of adopting the charter, Humber is making the following commitments:
- We will infuse health and sustainability into the decisions we make, expanding our focus on the success and well-being of our students, employees, community and environment.
- We will continue to cultivate a rich and diverse learning and work environment as we recognize that diversity is our strength.
- We will continue to respect the primary importance of Indigenous cultural foundations and the principles of mutual respect, inclusion and community engagement.
