On October 20, 2021, an International Day of Action (IDoA) is scheduled to take place. Schools from around the world will be participating in raising awareness of the issue of contract cheating. Contract cheating has been defined as “the form of academic dishonesty where students get academic work completed on their behalf, which they then submit for academic credit as if they had created it themselves” (http://www.contractcheating.com).

This year, the discussion has extended to include online sites that suggest they offer tutoring services but in fact, are supporting acts of academic dishonesty by answering online test and exam questions or completing graded assignments for students. These sites are predatory in nature and during the height of COVID, aggressively marketed to students, profiting financially and putting student learning at risk.

If you would like to learn more about some of the international events happening on October 20, or more about free educational sessions on the day, please go to ICAI-IDoA.

You can also show your support for academic integrity by posting your personal messages about your commitment to integrity in the learning setting on your social media and including the hashtag #excelwithintegrity #myownwork. You may also contact Jennie Miron at jennie.miron@humber.ca in the Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness for more information about the day.

Academic integrity is important and our students deserve to learn and flourish in environments that cherish and promote integrity.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Phishing Awareness Game - Posted on October 14, 2021

Posted:
October 14, 2021

Through the HSPP Partnership, Humber and Seneca College have collaborated to develop an educational Phishing Awareness Game. With a focus on strategies for identifying malicious emails, players must correctly identify phishing emails in a virtual work environment.

In addition to providing our two communities with an entertaining learning experience, the game will also include a Humber Vs. Seneca scoreboard which will allow for friendly competition. So let's show Seneca's Sammy Sting just how powerful the Humber Hawk’s community is.

To get started, please go to husencollege.com to play the game today!

In addition to the game, Humber ITS also delivered training materials to all employees for Week 2: Sharing Special Moments.

To get started, please go to knowbe4.com to do your training.

What is the HSPP Partnership?

The Humber-Seneca Polytechnic Partnership (HSPP) was created to promote cooperation between institutions and enhance and expand learning opportunities as students begin, continue, or complete their postsecondary education. Leveraging the combined resources of Humber and Seneca, the HSPP also seeks to support collaborative activity rather than competition across institutions.

Finally, and most importantly, win prizes!

As a small token of our appreciation of your continued support of our cybersecurity initiatives, weekly raffles prizes will be made available. You can earn raffle entries each week for completing and participating in the game and our training material - the more you participate, the more entries you can earn. During the final week, a grand prize will be drawn, and all your accumulated raffle entries you have accumulated throughout the month will be eligible.

Nahannee Schuitemaker

I am pleased to announce Nahannee Schuitemaker as Humber’s first, Indigenous Curriculum & Pedagogy Specialist, Indigenous Education & Engagement.

Reporting to the Associate Dean, Indigenous Education and Engagement, the Indigenous Curriculum Specialist (ICS) works collaboratively with the IE&E, PPDR, RI, and T&L teams to provide professional-level consultation and collaborative support for the development of innovative and engaging Indigenous curriculum content, practicum experiences and work-integrated learning, and quality review. Applying knowledge of, and experience with, Indigenous pedagogies and decolonizing methodologies.

Nahannee Schuitemaker is of Kanien’keha:ka, French Canadian and Dutch descent. She has lived from coast to coast on Turtle Island and returned to Ontario in 2017 to begin her Ph.D. in Indigenous Studies at Trent University. Nahannee completed her Master of Arts in Curriculum Studies at the University of British Columbia in which she focused on the stories of mixed Indigenous women and their connection to land away from their own ancestral territories. She holds a double major BA in Psychology and Spanish with a focus on human rights and genocide studies, also completed at UBC. An artist and advocate at heart, her work and life journey has allowed her to work, build relationships with, and learn from fellow Indigenous peoples and communities.

Relocating from Vancouver to Ontario was propelled by her desire to be closer to Haudenosaunee communities in an effort to learn more about her Kanine’keha: ka roots and to embody her identity in a good way. Nahannee joined the Indigenous Education and Engagement team in the fall of 2020 as a part-time doctoral fellow and her enthusiasm for the work she was involved with led her to apply for her current position as Indigenous Curriculum and Pedagogy Specialist. While in this position, her work will include international collaborations delivering unique curricula, college-wide initiatives to build faculty and staff capacity, contributing to the establishment of Indigenous Research Protocols, and other Indigenous-centered initiatives to foster inclusivity and awareness at Humber College.

Ernie Colosimo Retirement

Ernie Colosimo has decided to turn in his keys and hang up his photo ID. Yes, "uncle Ernie" (as he is affectionately known) has decided to retire from Humber College after nearly 40 years of dedicated service to our community. Ernie grew up at Humber, first being a student (Business and Law and Security Leadership) and then becoming a student security patroller. He then became full-time in the Department of Public Safety back in 1987.

Ernie has contributed much to Humber College. More than what can be easily documented in this type of announcement. Some of the highlights worth mentioning would include converting locking hardware on campus to a high security, restricted master key system. When school shootings became a new phenomenon, Ernie researched and recommended a new "lockdown lock" to then Facilities Director Carol Anderson. These locks are still protecting students, staff and faculty today.

Ernie was also instrumental in bringing Humber College's physical security protection systems into the 21st century. The use of Lenel Access Control and Avigilon video surveillance is Ernie's doing. These systems have been in use for over 15 years and are still considered the gold standard. Humber's security systems have been featured in several industry case studies and highlights. Humber is often consulted by other post-secondary institutions on how we protect our most valued assets - students, staff and faculty. Ernie built up the Security Systems Team to what it is today, and we are all the better for it.

Ernie, thank you for all your hard work, dedication and everything else you have done for Humber College.

At Ernie's request, he didn't want a big send-off or celebration. Ernie celebrate with his family and time in his retirement to relax, travel and enjoy life. I'm certain he would appreciate your notes and well wishes through email or by phone. Ernie's last day at Humber will be August 30. 2021.

On behalf of the Department of Public Safety, please help us wish Ernie a joyous retirement. We will miss his big smile, his hearty laugh and his hilarious sense of humour around the office.    

Best wishes, Ernie. Don't be a stranger.

Sincerely,

Rob Kilfoyle, CPP, CMMIII Security Executive
Director, Public Safety and Emergency Management

I’m pleased to announce Quazance Boissoneau's appointment as Manager of Indigenous Education and Engagement (IE&E). We welcome her to this new exciting role for herself, and I look forward to working with her as we move forward with increasing Indigenous content and support throughout Humber College.

The Manager will report to the Dean, Indigenous Education & Engagement. Quazance 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 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 full-time in early 2014, she has led 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. She has built relationships and partnerships with stakeholders through her marketing campaigns 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. 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.

I've personally seen her growth and dedication toward Indigenous student supports through creating safe spaces for all within Humber College. Miigwech, Quazance and congratulations!

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

Posted:
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.

Limited Space Conditioning During Upcoming August 2 Civic Day Holiday Closure - Posted on July 28, 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.

Further to the recent announcement from Facilities regarding the repaving of Lot #1, Public Safety will be closing the entrance to the campus through Building L. This closure will remain in effect beyond the expected repaving completion.

Be advised that until August 30, the only access point to the North Campus will be through the main LRC entry doors. As we welcome many of you back to campus in September, more campus access points will be made available. An update message will be sent out mid-to-late August.

Thank you. Stay safe and have a great summer.
