Neil Price to Join the School of Social and Community Services as Associate Dean

Thursday, September 7, 2017

We are very pleased (SCSS), and also a little sad (SSE), to announce that Neil Price, currently Director of Student Life within Student Success & Engagement, will be joining the School of Social and Community Services in the position of Associate Dean.

Neil came to Humber in January, having taught for over 10 years at George Brown. Neil has extensive experience working as a program leader, community researcher and youth advocate. Passionate about access to post-secondary education, he has held management positions with Pathways to Education and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. Neil’s pedagogical and subject matter expertise, his deep awareness of the multiple barriers that college students face, and his demonstrated ability to foster effective relationships across the college sector, will continue to be invaluable in his new role.

Neil holds a Master of Public Policy and Administration degree from Ryerson University, a Bachelor of Education from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), and a Bachelor of Arts in English and History from York University. He has led a number of programs focused on student retention, and has been an invited speaker provincially with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, as well as internationally with such organizations as the Mozilla Foundation.

Neil’s work embodies a deep commitment to learning, collaboration and facilitation. He is constantly in search of new ways to merge his interests in education, technology and community-building.  His experience within student affairs at Humber will serve to continue the strong relationship between SSE and SSCS.  Neil will transition roles in October, ensuring that our orientation and early transition programs are well underway. Please join us in congratulating Neil on this new position.
