Diwali is an important milestone for many staff and students within the Humber and UofGH community. One of the goals of our new strategic plan is to establish a supportive campus culture, rich in diversity of thought and identity. As such, it’s important that our student focused programming is supported by strong role models and mentors that reflect students’ diverse backgrounds and experiences. Both Diwali celebrations, held on November 6 and 7 at North and Lakeshore Campus respectively, were organized by Senior Peer Mentors who are part of the First Year Experience program in Student Success and Engagement. 

Earlier in November, the Life at Humber team partnered with the First Year Experience Program and International Centre to produce The Story of Diwali, a short documentary that showcases the Diwali experience from three unique perspectives; that of an international student celebrating Diwali away from home for the first time, and those of the planning committees at North and Lakeshore Campus.
