The Office of Research & Innovation (ORI) supports faculty and staff members who want to engage in applied research activities by collaborating with industry and community partners to solve real-world problems.
FACULTY RESEARCH AT HUMBER
Faculty researchers bring innovation into the classroom, which helps to prepare students for career success. ORI works with faculty to bring forward projects and create connections with industry and community partners. This can happen in a number of different ways: industry, community or not-for-profit partner-driven capstone projects can provide students with valuable skills and relevant work experience; projects funded by one of Humber’s internal research funds enable faculty members to pursue their own research interests and engage students as active members of the research team; externally funded projects allow faculty members to stay actively involved in their field, cultivate industry partnerships, and provide intensive work experiences for students.
Research & Innovation helps faculty members form new partnerships, especially interdisciplinary collaborations, and explore innovative ways to enhance curriculum. Ideas can start with a sketch on the back of a lunchroom napkin or with a blue-sky conversation at an event or trade show.
