The HLOs and Humber’s Strategic Plan


The Humber Learning Outcomes framework is part of Humber’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan. In support of our strategic mission, the Humber community aims to represent our unique polytechnic identity through the development of global citizens who embody the knowledge and skills to lead and innovate.

Being a career-ready citizen means having the knowledge and skills to succeed in the ever-evolving workplace.

Strategic Priority 1: Transform education by creating opportunities for all students to participate in meaningful experiential learning, with a focus on work-integrated learning and applied research.

Supporting Action: Integrate core 21st century global citizenship and employability skills into all program curricula.

Our collective responsibility is to uphold our core values — courage, innovation, equity, health & well-being, and sustainability — while ensuring that all graduates possess the core competencies essential for success in the workforce and in life.
