By signing the Charter, Humber is incorporating health into everyday operations, business practices and academic mandates to support students, staff and faculty.

#WeAreAtOurBest

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.

Our Commitment

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.

The Charter

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.
