New Online Exhibition: Scene and Unseen: Exploring South Etobicoke through Postcards - Posted on January 27, 2022

Postcards featuring views of South Etobicoke

In celebration of the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre’s five-year anniversary, our new online exhibition featuring postcards from our collection, launched January 26, 2022!

Why postcards? This nostalgic method of short-form communication rose in popularity in the early twentieth century due to the increased speed and affordability of the postal service. But for most of their history, postcards have served as more than just a way to share a word with a loved one. Postcards also act as a marker in time, representing a specific location and the memories that a collector may have.

Join us at Scene and Unseen to dive deeper into the stories of South Etobicoke.

Sustainability Spotlight: Jen Ball - Posted on January 26, 2022

January 26, 2022

This month, we’re putting the Sustainability Spotlight on Jen Ball!  

Jen is a professor in the General Arts and Science (GAS) program and has been a Humber employee since 2008. In the fall of 2021, Humber launched the Sustainability Stream, a new program option guiding students toward green sector careers. Jen played an instrumental role in the development of this stream and continues to teach courses informed by today’s global challenges, such as the climate crisis and social inequity.  

As an educator, Jen believes that individuals at the college level can play a crucial role in the fight against the climate crisis.  

“We at the college level are really in an excellent place to help shape the labour force required to meet the ambitious targets being set by Canada and the entire global community,” Jen said. “Not only that, we must graduate critical thinkers who can assess the plans being made and identify weaknesses and opportunities. I have such excellent colleagues at Humber who do this work every day in the classroom. It’s so exciting to be a part of this team.”

Accessible Learning Services Best Practice Considerations - Note-Taking Supports - Posted on January 26, 2022

January 26, 2022
Desta McCalla

Enhancing Institutional EDI Knowledge of Disability and Academic Accessibility 

  • Some students experience disability-related barriers around taking notes during class.  

  • In order to facilitate access to notes, some students registered with Accessible Learning may be utilizing notetaking support through a service called Note Taking Express, which is coordinated through Peer Assisted Learning Services. Students using this service are required to sign an agreement indicating they will only share the recording with Note Taking Express staff and acknowledging other conditions to keep accountability while utilizing this service. 

  • While faculty are not legally mandated to post their lecture slides/summaries/video recordings on Blackboard/CourseLink for all students, students with disabilities, in particular, may require access to such materials as an accommodation.  

  • As a helpful way to encourage participation, some faculty assign all students into small “note-taking groups” where each week they arrange for one group to collectively take and share their notes on Blackboard/Courselink for the whole class.  This supports students with disabilities and other students with diverse needs, which may impact taking notes during class in real-time. 

Visit our ALS Information for Faculty website to learn more about note-taking supports for students. 

Please email us at accessible-learning@humber.ca with suggestions for key accessibility-related topics that you would like us to address through the Communiqué.

Our rockstar of the week is Anxhelo Mecollari, a student from Albania who has been involved in different types of research. 

His first research experience with Humber started during his first semester when he joined Professor Dhimitri as a research assistant to innovate and develop the MRICOSA Water Purification Project. Later, he joined Barret CTI director, Neal Mohammed, to develop service rooms layouts and designs. 

Mecollari is a current research assistant and provides expertise in mechanical and machining services, collaborating with faculty members, and teaching students how to use machines. He is providing students with hands-on experience. But even with the COVID-19 pandemic, Anxhelo kept motivated, he joined with another Advanced Manufacturing Skills Consortium Partner Javelin Technologies Inc. to produce protective face-shields for Humber faculty and staff. 

When asked about his new goals, he hopes to, one day, lead his own applied research.  

“Research, in my mind, is like painting on a blank canvas”, said Anxhelo Mecollari.

Retirement: Peter Madott - Posted on January 13, 2022

January 13, 2022

Dear Humber community,

Peter Madott, affectionately known as ‘Madott’ will be retiring this spring 2022. 

Peter began his 20 year career in the Faculty of Business as the Program Coordinator of the Marketing Management, International Marketing and -Financial Services programs. In 2006, as Associate Dean, Peter was instrumental in the development, launch and success of the Global Business Management two-year graduate certificate program. GBM (launched in 2009) has been the most successful graduate certificate program in attracting and graduating thousands of international students in a variety of industries that include banking, marketing, supply chain and more.

As Associate Dean, Peter led the development and launch of many graduate certificates that include Financial Planning, Event Management, Entrepreneurial Enterprise, Insurance Management and most recently Business Insights and Analytics. Peter also led the college-wide development of the Centre for Entrepreneurship. His passion for the entrepreneurial spirit and the need to support all Humber students in becoming entrepreneurs was clear in his execution of the New Venture Seed Fund competition. Peter loved working with students, their business plan submissions and often their dreams to think big. 

Faculty and staff enjoyed working with Peter because he was sincere, thoughtful and always available to listen. He also had all the answers, either in a spreadsheet or a well-written note with dates and timelines.

We all have fond memories of Peter and his dedication to post-secondary education. For over a decade, Peter has organized and executed Humber’s Greatest High School Contest, a chance for students to honour that special high school teacher- the one who inspired all students to be their best. The contest was a career highlight for a number of high school teachers who were the recipients of the award. More importantly, Peter inspired our students, engaged our faculty and reminded all of us to celebrate great teaching.

Thank you, Peter, for over two decades of dedication to post-secondary education, we are all better faculty and staff to have known you.

Enjoy retirement, well-deserved.

Permanent Closure of Cash Office at North Campus - Posted on September 7, 2021

What is changing?

The cash office at North Campus is now permanently closed.

Why was this change made?

During the last several years, the College has taken steps to reduce the use of cash as a form of payment for Humber-owned establishments and events. This was in response to changing personal preference and evolution of financial service landscape with enabling technologies. The impacts of the pandemic on our campuses and activities over the past year have accelerated the decline of cash usage in favour of electronic payment methods.

What does this mean for me?

All the College-run services and establishments accept online banking, credit and debit card payments and will no longer be accepting cash as a method of payment. Chartwells, Bookstore, and other partner-run retail and food services are not impacted by this decision.

In order to facilitate any time-limited collection activity, Moneris payment terminals are available for temporary, short term rentals from Finance by submitting a Moneris Terminal Rental Request form. For ongoing or longer term solutions that may be required, please contact treasury@humber.ca to discuss your needs and available options.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of this change.

Limited Space Conditioning During Upcoming September 6 Labour Day Holiday Closure - Posted on August 31, 2021

August 31, 2021
Energy Masterplan logo

As part of Humber’s Integrated Energy Master Plan (IEMP), Facilities Management is constantly looking for opportunities to save energy and costs. With this in mind, we have reviewed our existing practice to condition spaces as normal on public holidays. Given the significantly reduced occupancy, going forward, we are implementing a change to limit conditioning (heating, cooling and ventilation) on public holidays in most areas of the College.

By limiting conditioning, we are keeping sustainability at the forefront of our campus buildings and operations and significantly reducing energy used by the facilities.

The following areas are excluded and will be conditioned as normal:

  • North Campus
    • LRC 3rd & 4th floors
    • Nx building first floor public safety offices
    • Residence buildings R, S & T
    • Gymnasium
  • Lakeshore Campus
    • L building first floor learning commons
    • Gymnasium
    • Residence building R

Please note that the reduced conditioning will only apply to the specific date that the public holiday falls on. The College will continue to be conditioned as normal over the rest of the weekend.

For any special requests or events that require conditioning (outside the areas listed above), please submit a service request through the Facilities Management Archibus Work Order Request system (Go to http:www.humber.ca/facilities and click on “Place Service Request” to complete and submit a work order) or by calling Facilities Management at 416.675.6622 x4444. We ask that service requests be submitted a minimum of two business days in advance of the holiday.

If you would like to learn more about how we are implementing best practice in sustainable design, construction and the operation of new and renovated buildings, you can find information in our Sustainability Plan 2019-2024 and our Integrated Energy Master Plan.

As the fall semester approaches, the Facilities Team at Lakeshore Campus is working to make sure that all college heating and cooling systems are fully operational. With the current high temperatures in the city, we are experiencing higher than normal temperatures in the cottages at the East Lakeshore Campus. At this time, ongoing adjustments are being made to cool all areas at the East Campus and we advise all occupants that the indoor temperatures at all cottages will be fluctuating in the next few days.

Should you need further assistance, please contact the Lakeshore Facilities Team through Scott Skrinar at scott.skrinar@humber.ca and James Morgan at james.morgan@humber.ca.
