On Giving Tuesday, Make 2X the Impact for Extended Society Care Students - Posted on November 29, 2022

Posted:
November 29, 2022
Group of students jumping in the air

In Ontario, less than 5% of youth in extended society care (youth who are in or from the foster care system) graduate from college or university. The inability to cover tuition and living expenses are some of the reasons for this low success rate.

Humber currently has 55 students in extended society care. We are starting an initiative to support these students through a special bursary fund. By supporting extended society care students, you will show that our community stands behind them and wants them to succeed.

Every dollar counts, especially on Giving Tuesday where your donation will be matched!

Humber BRINGS IT to Prospective Students - Posted on November 25, 2022

Posted:
November 25, 2022
BRING IT in bold pink 3D with Humber logo in the middle

Dear Humber,

Earlier this week, Humber rolled out a new recruitment campaign targeted to domestic students.

Called BRING IT, the campaign is intended to be bold and motivational with an urban feel. The campaign’s goal is to increase student applications and enrolment to Humber and spur awareness and interest in the college. Please see an image of the creative at the end of this message.

BRING IT is a dedicated recruitment campaign running from now until mid-summer. It is separate from our We Are Humber brand identity. We Are Humber continues to be front and centre in broader college marketing and communications.

Working with our agency, Borealis Creative, we intentionally set out to create a recruitment campaign that is different from what other post-secondary institutions have produced. We are confident that we have achieved that goal with BRING IT.

The BRING IT campaign was developed from market and environmental research including a survey of grade 11 and 12 students and analysis of GTA post-secondary marketing and advertising campaigns.

The BRING IT campaign is notable for two main reasons. One, rather than traditional student and campus photography, the creative is typography and graphic based. The other is our collaboration with Ben Johnston, a widely known and award-winning local artist. Johnston created the BRING IT artwork that is being used in many applications. Johnston has worked with major brands and NGOs and his work is displayed across Toronto and the globe.

BRING IT creative is bold and vibrant. Primary copy invites prospective students to bring their talent, passion, drive and “everything that makes you YOU” to Humber, and that we’ll bring our best to provide a high-quality and successful college and campus experience.

The BRING IT campaign includes a dedicated webpage, various digital and out of home, off-campus advertising, along with on-campus components, including wall sized murals at both the North and Lakeshore campuses that are expected to be completed in December. Over the next few weeks and months, the campaign will be online, on apps, on social media, on billboards, in transit stations, buses and subways, in movie theatres, on campus and more.

As mentioned, the campaign’s primary goal is to increase applications to Humber. We will be monitoring and measuring all digital elements of the campaign. Any time a user clicks on a link or visits a page, we will know about it. Off-campus advertising performance will be evaluated though QR codes and other measures. Analytics will be used to guide ongoing campaign advertising, allowing us to move ads to where they are receiving the most attention.

We look forward to seeing the BRING IT campaign in market. Please contact me directly (by Teams or email) if there are any questions.

Thank you,

Andrew Leopold
Director, Marketing and Communications

Hello Humber teams,

I’m writing to let you know that Corina Ivory has accepted a new role as Manager, Work-Integrated Learning within the Humber’s Faculty of Media and Creative Arts (FMCA) and will be leaving her role as Manager, Placements and Partnerships within the FSCS. Corina’s final date with the FSCS is October 14, 2022. In her new role managing the FMCA Work-Integrated Learning Department, Corina will be leading WIL for 34 programs across various creative industries such as Music & Fine Arts, Social Media and Communications, Film, Journalism and Interaction Design. She will continue to collaborate on institutional initiatives connected to all Faculties such as the implementation of Humber’s Work-Integrated Learning Quality Assurance Framework. In her new role, Corina will also actively work to create meaningful WIL opportunities and partnership engagement in Humber’s new Cultural Hub

Corina has been an integral part of the FSCS team over the last 7 years. Corina has been foundational in building our work integrated learning (WIL) portfolio, creating and maintaining relationships with hundreds of partners, all while leading a team of placement advisors who supported FSCS students to secure WIL opportunities. Some of the more notable highlights of Corina’s work include the launch of placement abroad and faculty-led international trips for the FSCS and the establishment of the yearly Partnership Appreciation Conference to better support student success. She formalized flexible WIL offerings for students, and secured the first CEWIL iHub funding for students participating in unpaid WIL. Corina was also instrumental in streamlining administrative processes to assist students in fair and equitable access to WIL opportunities with other departments across the college.

As a whole, Corina’s work has enriched the learning experience of all FSCS students in countless ways. Needless to say, Corina will be greatly missed, and we are extremely grateful for the support, leadership and vision she has provided to our Faculty. We wish her well in her new role with FMCA.

Dear Humber community,

As I prepare to transition to my new role of retiree, and walk the halls of Humber one last time, I am taking this moment to thank you for your support and friendship over the years. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of walking alongside you as we worked through the many opportunities and challenges that came our way. You have achieved significant goals and started some powerful conversations and calls to action over the years and I know you will continue to respond in equally powerful ways.

The list of what I am proud of from my time at Humber is long. On my first day I commented on the energy and the caring nature of all who worked here. As I prepare for my last day, I would say the same thing. It is the people who truly make Humber what it is.

You are in good hands with President Vaughan, and I will miss working with her and the Executive Team as they craft Humber’s next strategic plan together with all of you.

Jason Hunter will take on the position of Acting Vice-President, HROE until the role of Vice-President People(s) and Culture is hired. I have learned a lot from Humber and all its great leaders. I will always remember you and my time at the college and leave with many fond memories.

Testing Services - New Service Model Reminder - Posted on October 5, 2022

Posted:
October 5, 2022

To all faculty and academic partners,

Scheduling Tests

All seats within the Testing Services are booked through an appointment-based process. For learners to schedule a test in the Test Centres, faculty must first make the test available within Blackboard or CourseLink.​

This is done in two easy steps:

  1. Adding the Testing Services integration to your course content  beginning of summer 2022
  2. Providing the test details and the test document – three days prior to the test date

Test Centre staff will approve the submission within one business day.​ Once approved, faculty will receive an automated email.​ Faculty can then let learners know that the test is available, and they can book their test via the system.​

More information about course integration and submitting a test can be found on our website (including new videos).

Learners

All learners must schedule their tests through Blackboard or CourseLink.​ Accommodations are automatically connected to the learner's profile in the system, and they are able to select the accommodations they wish to activate for each test.​ Learners will be prompted to select a date/time that is at minimum 48 hours away. Once the learner has completed their test in the Test Centre, faculty will receive an automated email and Test Centre staff will email faculty the completed exam.

More information about how to book a test can be found on our website (including a new video).

Extended Service Hours

Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. North and Lakeshore
Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. North (starting October 15)

Thank you for your continued partnership and support of all learners.

Humber's Capital Development and Facilities team at North Campus would like to inform our community of a partial road closure on Arboretum Blvd starting on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 10 a.m.

Due to the rehabilition project, which includes road resurfacing and construction of a new sidewalk, Arboretum Blvd will become a one-way street only on the south end, starting at the exit from Lot 1 (by P building) all the way to the entrance to Lot 13/14 (B building). Traffic will flow only in this westbound direction. Access to all areas at the back of the college will continue to be maintained (F Building, G building, daycare, DX Receiving, Lot 15). In order to reach this area, we suggest to use entrance A from Humber College Blvd.

The project is scheduled to be completed on Monday, October 31, 2022.

Should you have any questions, please contact Roman Fuzak at roman.fuzak@humber.ca.
