Pathways To Human Rights, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Education & Action Trainings - 2021/2022 Academic Year - Posted on May 14, 2021

The Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion (the Centre) engaged the Humber College community in a participatory and consultative process to obtain feedback on Humber’s Human Rights Policy and Human Rights Complaint Resolution Procedures in 2018. As a result, Humber launched the revised Human Rights Policy and Human Rights Complaint Resolution Procedures in December 2018.

The Ontario Human Rights Commission requires that all employers provide ongoing education and training on the organization’s human rights policy. All Humber employees (full-time, non-full-time, work-study) are required to update their knowledge of Humber’s Human Rights Policy and Complaint Resolution Procedures.

Students in Humber’s three-year advanced diploma Massage Therapy program are available to provide faculty and students who are on campus with massage therapy this summer.  Patients are encouraged to seek treatment for pain, injury rehabilitation and stress management issues during the summer semester. 

During this past year we have all experienced more stress, loneliness, and isolation than ever before.  Massage therapy can be an excellent way to support students and faculty reduce stress, connect safely with others and assist in any goals of pain reduction they may currently be experiencing.  

Clinic fees:
1st appointment = Free
Students: $13.28 + 13% ($1.72) = $15.00
Other: $22.13 + 13% ($2.88) = $25.00

Please see attached flyer for further details and schedules.

Please note all government safety protocols have been put in place in the Massage Therapy Program Student Clinic in order to keep our staff, students and patients as safe as possible. We also require patients to be wearing a face mask while in the clinic at all times.

Clinic hours:
Monday, May 10, 2021 to August 13, 2021

Enhanced Health and Safety Measures to Include Temperature Checks at Campus Entryways - Posted on May 14, 2021

Posted:
May 14, 2021

As Ontario continues to grapple with the third wave of COVID-19, Humber has enhanced health and safety on campus. They include:

  • Temperature checks at campus entryways (effective May 19 for the summer term) - Temperature checks will be performed by Public Safety staff upon entering campus. Public Safety staff will continue to check for completed self-screenings on the Humber Guardian app, or will provide an alternative format, as required. No personal information will be gathered as part of this new screening process. Anyone who is identified as having an elevated temperature (37.8°C or more) will be provided with information on next steps and directed to leave campus Students who live in residence will not be screened upon entry to the Residence. However, they will be screened upon entry to other campus buildings. Contractors and employees will be screened upon entry to Residence.

  • Enhanced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - In the last few weeks, enhancements were made to the PPE used in programs within the Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness. Going forward, similar changes will also be put in place for any classes or labs requiring partner work. In addition, PPE enhancements will be implemented for staff whose work requires them to be less than 6 feet/2 metres apart.

Also, as a new term gets underway, please review the information on when and how to report COVID-19.

If you are feeling unwell in any way, please do not come to campus. Health and safety are a shared responsibility, and we appreciate your ongoing support and cooperation.

As always, the latest information can be found on humber.ca/updates and HROE’s COVID-19 Resources website

Christina Alcena, Interim Associate Director, Advising & Career Services - Posted on April 19, 2021

Posted:
April 19, 2021

Many of you are aware that Melanie Chai, Associate Director, Advising & Career Services will soon be setting off on parental leave. We will certainly miss her skilled leadership during that time but are also very excited for her and her family as they prepare to welcome a new addition to their ranks.

I am pleased to announce that, Christina Alcena (she/her), currently the Manager, Equity & Student Life, is the successful incumbent for the role of Interim Associate Director, Advising & Career Services, filling in for Melanie during her absence.

As the Manager, Equity & Student Life, Christina led significant organizational change that brought the Student Diversity & Inclusion Hubs together with Student Life in service of common student success and retention outcomes. Christina worked closely with this new team to advance key objectives related to supporting students from equity-deserving groups and growing our transition programming to meet students’ evolving needs, with specific attention to inter-sectional identities and in response to the ever changing learning and employment context. This included supporting the team through a complete re-invention of our offerings – Orientation, FYE, The BASE & LGBTQ+ Resource Centre - to an online environment that would continue to deliver meaningful support, engagement and community engagement for students.

During her tenure, Christina has also played a critical role as a member of Humber’s EDI Task Force, has served as a member of the Humber Gallery Committee as well as the Black/African Employee Resource Group (ERG), and made great strides in advancing the Humber-Seneca Polytechnic Partnership. Christina holds a Masters of Education Curriculum, Teaching & Learning and is currently an EdD candidate for a Doctor of Education in Social Justice Education at OISE. 

Christina’s track record in her most recent role, her knowledge of Student Success & Engagement and Humber, together with her education and 9+ years of experience both inside and outside of post-secondary education, position her well to support the Advising & Career Services team in advancing their priorities in the next 20 months. Christina’s official start date as the Interim Associate Director, Advising & Career Services is May 10, although she will be engaged with both teams leading up to her start date and until her current position is filled. 

I hope you will join me in congratulating Christina on this new assignment. We are grateful to Christina for taking on this secondment and excited for her contributions to this portfolio.

Retirement: Joe Andrews - Posted on April 7, 2021

Posted:
April 7, 2021

After 33 years at Humber College, Joe Andrews, principal, Orangeville Campus has announced his retirement as of August 31, 2021.

As a proud Humber graduate and after charting a very successful career in Canadian media, Joe was hired as a professor in 1988 in the Radio Broadcasting program. Committed from day one to making a difference in the classroom, Joe inspired his students to be the best they could be in preparation for the competitive media world.

In 1990, Joe was appointed Coordinator of both the diploma and post-graduate Radio Broadcasting programs where the faculty team collectively guided hundreds of today’s well-known personalities, radio news journalists and media leaders. He was also instrumental in helping Humber to secure the first FM radio license for a college in Toronto. 

Progressive throughout his Humber career, Joe continued to take on additional responsibilities over the years and even found time to complete a Master’s Degree in Communications in 1998. Joe has been a key and valued member of several Humber committees, has represented the institution on international projects, and has received both education and industry recognition including; Humber’s Outstanding Faculty Award, a NISOD Award of Excellence, the first inductee to the Humber Radio Hall of Fame in the Builders Category, and the Robert A. Gordon Leadership Award for his leadership of the Orangeville Campus project.

A passionate postsecondary educator, Joe has championed the vision of the Orangeville Campus since October 2005 in the capacity of Director Community Relations, Director of Campus Operations and as Campus Principal linking Humber to the Dufferin County region while leading an incredible operations staff and faculty until its closure in June of this year.

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Joe since my arrival at Humber in 2014 and wish to take this opportunity to sincerely thank him for his professionalism, his dedication, and his unwavering commitment to Humber and the Orangeville community. It was obvious to me from day one how much Joe cares about Humber and our students, and how much he loves the work that he does. I was not surprised then to hear that Joe plans to remain professionally active after his retirement. He will continue to fulfill his current part-time elected role on Orangeville Council and also plans on dabbling in some media consultancy projects.

To ensure that friends and colleagues have the opportunity to connect with Joe before he retires, we will be organizing a farewell event in the coming months. In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Joe on his well-deserved retirement and wishing him well as he leaves to spend more time with family and friends, and to continue the renovations at his cottage north of Parry Sound.

As we continue to deliver mail and packages across the College, we advise each department to go through their incoming mail on campus on a weekly basis as we’ve observed a significant build-up of mail, parcels, and packages in a few mail areas. We advise each department to assign an individual who can take care of the incoming mail on a weekly basis to avoid missed items.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Daniel Alonzo, Associate Director, Facilities Management.

Winter term is moving into its fourth week and the Campus Bookstores (North and Lakeshore) are beginning preparations for our annual inventory. To streamline this process, we will begin to return unsold copies of course materials to publishers the week of February 8. We will be keeping a very limited stock of course materials.   

Please remind your students to purchase their required course materials as soon as possible to ensure we have materials available. 

If a textbook is required and stock is unavailable, we will gladly accept a prepayment for the title and place an order on your behalf. However, there is a lead time associated with this process which can be up to four to six business days, depending upon the source and their inventory the lead time may be longer. We will do our very best to accommodate each and every student request. 

Please note the North Campus Bookstore will be closed on Thursday, February 25 for inventory. 

Lakeshore Campus Bookstore will remain open due to no annual inventory. 

The North Campus Bookstore will reopen on Friday, February 26.  

We thank you in advance for your patience.

Facilities Management Work Order System Updates - Posted on December 7, 2020

Posted:
December 7, 2020

We are pleased to announce that we are upgrading the Facilities Management (Archibus) Work Order Request System. The Work Order System will soon be upgraded to the Archibus 25.1 version. The system will be unavailable between Monday, December 7 at 12 a.m. until Tuesday, December 8 at 12 a.m. for this work to be completed.

This upgrade will resolve the limitation of being dependent upon Adobe Flash and will offer clients more streamlined interfaces. The link to place Service Requests will still be found at humber.ca/facilities.

As we roll out this new version clients can expect service outages on December 7 and 8. Clients who are unable to place Service requests on those days should call 416.675.6622 x4444 to place a service request .

This upgrade will not affect how clients access or use the system. More information will be available in the coming days via the Facilities Management website including Tip Sheets and updated User Guides.

If you have questions or concerns about this project please contact suzanne.hardcastle@humber.ca.
