It is with mixed emotions that I share that Jacqueline (Jacquii) Anderson is leaving Humber College.
Jacquii has a storied Humber history, serving in faculty and leadership positions focused on supporting student success and wellbeing. Over the last five years, Jacquii has held the Associate Director, Student Health and Counselling position – serving on a number of College committees, providing strategic leadership in emergency and pandemic responses, and of course, leading the various functional unit teams toward meaningful outcomes for learners, SSE, and the Humber community. Jacquii has shared her expertise, passion, and humour with us all – balancing competing priorities of various groups, operational need, and student-centric approaches with grace. Jacquii’s leadership has underpinned the success of the teams within her portfolio, facilitating new and innovative approaches while maintaining focus in the core services.
Specifically, to name only a selection of accomplishments, we’ve seen:
increases in groups collaboratively facilitated by our Nursing and Counselling teams (highlighting the strength of our interdisciplinary teams),
increased integration with curricular programming resulting in the growing partnership with the Peer Wellness Coaching program,
dedicated focus on health promotion and wellness education to enhance harm reduction beyond clinical support,
the development and administration of a leading-edge COVID 19 Reporting team to address the unique needs of the pandemic in a postsecondary setting, and
reinforcing the strong foundations of practice while adopting technological systems and tools to enhance effectiveness and equitable access to service.
Jacquii’s last day will be September 28, 2021. Please join me in congratulating Jacquii on her exciting next steps.
Associate Dean, Student Wellness & Equitable Learning
