Retirement: Joanne Settle

After 34 years at Humber, Joanne Settle, one of our most senior Accessibility Consultants at our Lakeshore Campus in the Student Wellness & Accessibility Centre has announced she will bid us farewell at the end of 2019 and ease into retirement.

Joanne began her journey at Humber in April 1986. She has spent her professional career in interestingly varied student-facing roles, as part of the network in student affairs, supporting our learners in the Humber Community.

Joanne has always conveyed her passion for working with diverse learners and has had an incredible impact in their lives, earning her the adoration and respect of her teammates and colleagues.

She has been a thoughtful contributor to shaping Accessible Learning Services and how we provide support and facilitate access to resources. Joanne has further used her voice and influence through her many accomplishments within and outside the team, particularly, in forging solid partnerships with allies and faculty across the college.      

While it is a loss for our team, this announcement comes with excitement for what lies ahead for Joanne, which we all hope will be a wonderful new chapter in her life. 

She has been a champion in the post-secondary landscape for accessibility and education and we will greatly miss her and her bright smile!

Please join us in celebrating Joanne by sending her an email with your well wishes.

Congratulations, Joanne!
