Jenna Donelson is moving on to a new role at Queen’s University as Executive Director, Government Relations and will be leaving Humber in late June. I am excited for Jenna to pursue this new opportunity and sad to have to say goodbye to one of our talented leaders in External Affairs and Professional Learning.
Jenna joined Humber in 2019 in a new Public Affairs Manager role. She focused on engaging government and other key stakeholders to advance the college’s strategic goals, and in recognition of her achievements and effective collaboration, Jenna became Director, Public Affairs & Strategic Engagement in 2022.
While at Humber, Jenna has worked to raise awareness about the Humber Cultural Hub with all three levels of government, played a key role in the successful advocacy to empower colleges to grant independent nursing degrees and helped inform provincial policies for colleges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Jenna was also instrumental in working with the government in developing standalone PSW training, upskilling funding and Humber’s Blue Ribbon Panel response. Throughout the last five years Jenna has led numerous government events and campus visits featuring Premier Ford, Federal and Provincial Ministers and other notable elected officials and dignitaries.
I have no doubt Jenna will be successful in her new role at Queen’s University, working with their Senior Leadership Team and helping to support students and colleagues through her work.
Please join me in congratulating her and wishing her all the best.
Vice President, External Affairs and Professional Learning
