Humber residence staff pivot to provide safe housing for students

Living in residence is an important college experience for some students and, though COVID-19 has moved in, Humber College’s Residence staff are making sure that the students living in residence are housed safely.

“In those early days, we had lots of unknowns. All of us were focused on our students. We had something like 1,400 residents living with us on both campuses,” said D Merkley, front desk coordinator at Humber’s Lakeshore campus.

Humber and Seneca Sign Milestone Pathway Agreement to Increase Learning Opportunities - Posted on March 4, 2021

Posted:
March 4, 2021

As many of you know, the Humber-Seneca Polytechnic Partnership was launched in 2018.

The Humber-Seneca Polytechnic Partnership (HSPP) has expanded learning opportunities for students as they begin, continue or complete their post-secondary education with either institution. 

A recently signed milestone pathways agreement has established more than 200 pathways between the two polytechnic institutions, increasing opportunities for degree completion in business, public safety, mental health, data science and analysis, and interdisciplinary studies.

The HSPP pathway agreement creates various options to build on diplomas in areas like business, where students can choose degree options with specializations in management, accounting and finance, fashion and human resources.  The agreement also includes joint efforts on program planning and development as well as teaching and learning activities. 

This latest HSPP initiative leverages the expertise and combined resources of both Humber and Seneca for the benefit of our respective students. When we formed the HSPP we were focused on collaboration rather than competition and we are proud to be able to work together to increase access to world-class education in Ontario.

Since its creation, the HSPP has promoted broad co-operation and collaboration between Humber and Seneca while enhancing and expanding learning opportunities for students at both institutions.

In addition to this latest agreement, the HSPP has also provided opportunities for international collaboration, to improve youth employment in the Maldives, as well as joint procurement for shared efficiencies between the two colleges. 

Students can find information on these pathways and how to access them as well as more details about the HSPP on humberseneca.ca.

Since then, the Study Buddy program, hosted by program coordinator Annette Borger-Snel, has become a hangout of sorts, where students can ask her questions, socialize and have the odd baking competition.

retirement invitation for Simka Delevska, Friday February 26 from 3:00pm-4:30pm via MS Teams

After 15+ years of outstanding service and dedication to the Humber community, our beloved Simka Delevska has decided to retire at the end of February 2021.

Simka joined the Office of the Registrar in September 2003, and began her journey at the Customer Service/Welcome Desk before becoming a Contact Centre Advisor where she continued to showcase exemplary skills providing guidance, solutions, and compassion to our students.

In February 2013, Simka was promoted to a Contact Centre Coordinator, where she provided expert guidance to our staff and exhibited remarkable leadership, dependability, and enthusiasm.

For many years, Simka has brought warmth and energy to the Office of the Registrar, and has been a valuable and well-respected resource for all. Simka has been a cornerstone in the Contact Centre and is renowned for always being the first one to lend a helping hand to anyone. Her energetic personality, dedication, and selfless hard work are an example for everyone to follow.

It is bittersweet to see Simka go, not only are we losing an extraordinary member of the Humber team, but also the creator of the famous and most scrumptious Simka Donuts.

Simka will be greatly missed, but we are happy that she can enjoy this next chapter of life with her family.  

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Simka for her remarkable contributions to Humber. On behalf of the Office of the Registrar and the Humber community at large, we wish Simka all the best in retirement.

We invite you to join us for a virtual farewell celebration in Simka’s honour on Friday, February 26 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We have also created a virtual card for those who wish who would like to send Simka their best wishes, please feel free to add a GIF or photo.

Retirement: Robert Richardson - Posted on February 5, 2021

Posted:
February 5, 2021

The Faculty of Media & Creative Arts asks you to join us in congratulating Robert Richardson on his upcoming retirement. He has almost 20 years of service at Humber.

Bob, as he is affectionately known, is a true Humber success story. Starting at Humber as a student in the Film & TV Production advanced diploma, launching a second career, he balanced his studies with a workstudy position, graduating with honours and top of the class, followed by a part-time role, full-time support staff position, full-time professor, program coordinator, and finally, Associate Dean. Bob has excelled in all of his roles and has made many valuable contributions to the Faculty of Media & Creative Arts and the broader Humber community.

Bob is a kind, generous, and fair leader who always took the time to listen and check in with you. His love of history, literature, films, and even farming made conversations more interesting. As an early riser, we often joked that Bob “opened up” the Lakeshore Campus, when on many occasions, he would arrive before Public Safety had a chance to open up the doors to the building.

Bob’s last day at Humber will be March 1. Please join me in wishing Bob the very best of luck in this next chapter of life.

Dr. Sterling Crowe, Associate Dean, Student Wellness & Equitable Learning - Posted on January 29, 2021

Posted:
January 29, 2021

It is with great excitement that I am announcing the appointment of Dr. Sterling Crowe to the role of Associate Dean, Student Wellness & Equitable Learning. Sterling comes to Humber after leadership experiences at Centennial College and Nipissing University where he has led teams in residence life, student life, student learning and transitions, and accessible learning and counseling services. During his hectic professional career, Sterling has also successfully completed his MA in History and most recently his Ed D. in Higher Education from Western University. 

Sterling brings an intentional and evidenced-informed approach to his work as an educator, administrator and leader. He places leading people, priorities and projects at the centre of his work and ensures that student voices and input are considered in program review, development, and design through the use of student-centric consultation processes. As an example, in his previous roles at Centennial, Sterling was integral in leading comprehensive service reviews, developing a new model supported by data and engagement, and implementing these models to support student wellness, accessibility and success.

Throughout his career, Sterling has demonstrated the ability to balance strategic and systems thinking while maintaining supportive and impactful relationships, which is a mindset that will serve him well in his new role. When Sterling joins Humber on February 22, albeit virtually, he will be overseeing a team of leaders who support students in the areas of Residence Life, Student Conduct and Sexual Violence Prevention, Student Health and Counselling, Accessible Learning Services, and Testing Services. Please join me and the team in Student Success and Engagement in welcoming Sterling to Humber.

Welcome to Humber, Sterling!
