President's Message on the invasion of Ukraine

To the Humber community,

Today, as details continue to emerge about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Humber community supports the many students and employees at Humber with direct and indirect ties to Ukraine, Russia and the rest of Europe. At Humber, we are fortunate to have many international students from both Ukraine and Russia who are part of our community.

We continue to foster an inclusive environment and support employees and students who are impacted by this ongoing situation. Below is a list of services available to students and staff. This is a difficult time for many, and we are here to help.

Resources for students and staff:

  • Students can contact the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre for support. Same and next-day services may be available for both in-person and virtual appointments
  • Good2Talk (1-866-925-5454) is a 24-hour mental health support for Post-Secondary Students in Ontario
  • Mental health support is available in 60 languages, including Ukrainian and Russian. To use the service, please call the International Student Helpline (KeepMeSafe): 1-844-451-9700
  • Therapy Assist Online
  • Staff may also access Employee Assistance Plan services
  • ConnexOntario: 1-866-531-2600

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and Russia, and we hope for a quick and peaceful resolution to this act of aggression.
