"Humber College has identified Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) as intentional imperatives for the College. While the College already has a robust EDI program, it recognizes the need to expand, deepen and integrate its breadth throughout Humber. Please join us on this journey of inclusive excellence."
-Nancy Simms, Former Director, Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion

In the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, the Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning has identified as its Strategic Priority #7 to continue to build a diverse and inclusive community of exceptional students, faculty and staff. This priority is listed under Strategic Pillar #3 – Healthy and Inclusive Community.

Humber convened members of the College and community to join an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Taskforce that worked alongside the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion to establish an institutional framework and strategy for equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).
