Community

Humber has a long history of supporting community through a variety of outreach programs and cultural projects. A key pillar of the 2018 - 2023 Humber Strategic Plan is a healthy and inclusive community.

Healthy and Inclusive Community

Transforming education is a powerful vision that must be anchored in the strength of our people. As Humber strives to reach the strategic goals, we understand that true innovation will be shaped by the unique perspectives and contributions of our diverse campus communities and that well-being has a profound effect on achievement and engagement, particularly in times of great change. Lakeshore Campus continues to develop creative connections with various organizations, local Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) and non-profit community partners. We recognize the importance of continued enhancement of our vibrant campus communities by supporting students, staff and local community for social and cultural opportunities.
