Retirement: Lynn Bachinski

Lynn Bachinski exemplifies selfless dedication and excellence to faculty and students alike during her more than 13 years at Humber. She is a strong social justice advocate and a champion for student success on and off campus. As a dedicated professor and program coordinator, she has a remarkable history of dealing with students in a way that serves up professionalism with a personal touch. Even before she was a PC, students would be lined up outside the office near the end of term so she could tell each one of them individually how they had done in her course. This commitment to individual attention was impressive, and she went out of her way to deliver it. 

In 2019, Lynn received the League of Innovation’s Excellence Award in recognition of her outstanding contributions and leadership. That same year, students in the Community and Justice Services Program (CJS) nominated her for the Student Appreciation Award.

Lynn has left an indelible footprint on the Faculty of Social and Community Services and the Community and Justice Services program that will remain for years to come. We wish her happiness in the next chapter of her journey.
