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.
Upon her departure, we respectfully ask that all communication be directed to Diana Balingit (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will take on the role as Interim, Manager of Placements and Partnerships until we complete the hiring process.
