Defining Social Innovation at Humber

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our Social Innovation survey. The survey has officially closed. Humber’s potential for social innovation focuses on multidisciplinary approaches to facilitate the removal of barriers, community capacity development through the co-creation of solutions that address current societal challenges on a local, national and global level. We will be using the survey results, along with other data, to help inform the future of Social Innovation at Humber.

Social Innovation Projects

Humber’s potential for social innovation focuses on multidisciplinary approaches to facilitate the removal of barriers, community capacity development through the co-creation of solutions that address current societal challenges on a local, national and global level. Projects in this area aim to address challenges and create social opportunities by collaborating with community members and partners to take collective action. Social innovation projects create opportunities for students from programs such as Addictions and Mental Health, Criminal Justice, Child and Youth Care, Social Services Worker, Developmental Service Worker and many others across all Humber Faculties. Some of Humber’s facilities that support this applied research are the Conflict Resolution Simulation Lab, the Crime Lab, and the Forensic Studio.
