 It shows slightly more international students receiving awards than domestic students. Of the international students, about one forth are 25 years or older. Of the domestic students, about one third are 25 years or older.

On March 31, 2020, Humber surveyed its students to assess how COVID-19 was impacting them. Students reported high stress related to:

  • The loss of employment;
  • The ability to pay for food and housing; and
  • The ability to continue in academic programs while providing childcare or other family support.

International students and those older than 25 years were disproportionately affected. This research finding is consistent with college’s and Ignite’s Emergency Financial Relief Fund awards disbursed in the winter and summer of 2020, which saw proportionately more of this population receive funding to meet basic needs than their domestic counterparts and those younger than 25 years.

A previous study of the impact of Humber’s financial aid program on student success found that financial assistance positively affected retention, and students who received financial aid had higher GPAs than those that did not.

The analysis is available in this new one page brief. For more information, please contact Abhinandhan Raghu.

This publication is the latest in IPA’s Insights series which supports institutional data literacy and the establishment of a common understanding about important institutional issues and topics related to Humber’s strategic priorities.

Posted:

The inaugural INSIGHT Into Diversity Inspiring Affinity Group Award recognizes 38 member groups that have made a significant impact on their members, campuses, and communities. Campus organizations that offer employees opportunities for social and professional networking, peer mentoring, and more are typically referred to as employee resource groups (ERGs) or affinity groups.

Humber's African/Black Affinity Group and LGBTQ+ Affinity Group provide an atmosphere that fosters growth and development for members and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus. Each organization assists in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of underrepresented employees as well as provides opportunities for community engagement and outreach.

Quazance Boissoneau, Acting Manager, Indigenous Education & Engagement - Posted on June 8, 2020

I am pleased to announce Quazance Boissoneau’s appointment as Acting Manager of Indigenous Education and Engagement (IE&E) as of June 1, 2020.

The Interim Manager will provide leadership for the breadth of services for Humber’s Indigenous community, provided through the IE&E. Services include the continued expansion of cultural and social support programs, community outreach, advising services, peer support services and the planning of various cultural events on campus. The Interim Manager will develop, maintain and operationalize services that reflect the College’s commitment to the Indigenous Education Protocol.  

An Anishinaabekwe from Garden River First Nation, Quazance has worked as the Aboriginal Liaison Officer at Humber College since Fall 2013. Quickly hired on full time in early 2014, she has lead the College in strategic communications with First Nation communities and leveraged Humber’s brand identity by attending Indigenous sporting events and conferences across the province and nationally. Through her marketing campaigns, she has built relationships and partnerships with stakeholders to advance Humber and the department’s brand recognition.

Quazance is a 2018 graduate from Carleton University's Public Policy and Administration Post-Graduate Diploma Program where she specialized in Indigenous Policy and Administration. Prior to studying public policy and administration, she studied business and marketing at both the University and Collegiate level. In 2013, she graduated from George Brown College with a Graduate Certificate in Sports and Event Marketing. A former varsity athlete, she graduated in 2012 from Algoma University specializing in Public Administration and Human Resources. Quazance is an advocate for Indigenous mental health and physical wellness. Her emphasis is on advancing Indigenous youth through sport and education.

Regina Hartwick, Acting Associate Dean, Indigenous Education & Engagement - Posted on June 8, 2020

It is my pleasure to announce Regina Hartwick as Acting Associate Dean of Indigenous Education & Engagement as of June 1, 2020.

A Kichi-Sìbì Anishinàbekwe, Regina Hartwick is honoured to serve as Acting Associate Dean, Indigenous Education & Engagement at Humber College. With eight years of experience in Indigenous Student Services, nine years of experience teaching within and developing Indigenous Studies courses, and 16 years of combined academic experience in Canadian Studies, Indigenous Studies, Psychology and Social Services, Regina is an accomplished Indigenous scholar who recognizes the challenges, privileges and responsibilities of post-secondary education. She has sought to transform education in ways that are more inclusive of Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing. Through her community work, teaching, research, and academic writing, Regina honours the gifts, offerings and teachings of those who came before, making tracks that are with each step a dedication to generations that will follow.

Under the mentorship of Michi Saagiig scholar Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Regina is currently completing her Doctorate in Indigenous Studies at Trent University and is focusing her research on stories of presence that speak not only of dispossession but also of strength and resilience in the face of innumerable odds. The intersection of narrative memory and beliefs on what it means to be Anishinabe within the complex relational nexus of the Kichi Sìbì, act as anchor that brings to the forefront a (re)imagining of how Anishinàbeg might realize the full potential of our human embodiment, with healthy hearts, minds, bodies and spirits.

This position is new to Humber and will have a unique relationship with the academic faculty and supports how we at Humber College approach our future in innovative ways. Reporting to the Dean, Indigenous Education and Engagement, while also working closely with Program Planning, Development and Review, and the Centre for Teaching and Learning, the Acting Associate Dean is informed by the college’s mission, vision, principles, and strategic plans, CiCan’s Indigenous Education Protocol (2014), the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action (2015), and Humber’s Strategic Plan (2018-2023).

As part of the College’s DX Receiving project, we will be building a new one-storey building in the space behind building D at the North Campus. This receiving building will have walk-in fridges and freezers, loading docks, loading areas, and office spaces, serving the Faculty of Business’ culinary programs, as well as other campus services.

Starting Monday, February 24, 2020, a large portion of parking lot 15 will be closed permanently. The portable building DX will also be demolished.

Construction start date Monday, February 24, 2020
Construction completion date Winter 2021

Alternative parking spots have been arranged for staff who currently park in the affected area of parking lot 15. During construction, staff who continue parking in lot 15 will experience some noise and inconveniences – especially during excavation activities. We apologize in advance for disturbances and are working with our contractors to minimize the impact.

For questions related to parking, please contact James Irvine at x5438. For questions related to construction, please contact Robert Parkin at x4829.
