Humber is committed to continuous quality improvement and engaging students in this process. At the end of January, the College will administer the online ‘Ontario Colleges Student Experience Survey’ (OCSES) that has replaced the previous ministry KPI Student Satisfaction survey. This survey will measure student experiences related to teaching and learning quality, program related knowledge and skills, work integrated learning (if applicable), and student services and resources. The results of the survey will allow the college to identify strengths and areas of improvement.


All students in full-time, funded programming enrolled in semesters 2 to 8 will receive a personal survey link on Monday, January 30. The survey will remain open until Friday, February 17 at midnight. Key messaging will be communicated to students by Humber to promote the survey and encourage completion. In order to achieve an optimal response to this survey, facilitators/instructors will be present in classes selected by the Faculties to explain the purpose of the survey to students, provide direction for survey completion and allot class time to complete the survey (approximately 10-15 minutes).

For questions about the survey, please contact Jean O’Donnell at jean.o’

Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education (JIPE), Humber Press, Office of Research & Innovation (ORI), is accepting new submissions on a rolling basis.

Have you participated in or conducted a research/innovation study? Do you have research you want to share? Every research project, study or initiative is a journey, and we invite you to share your journey by making a submission to JIPE.

JIPE publishes original research papers, review articles, brief reports, book reviews and our “micro-dissemination” options: innovation spotlights and essays. JIPE welcomes research stories and manuscripts from seasoned and emerging researchers from across the polytechnic and community college sectors, both within and outside Canada. Students/research assistants are also encouraged and invited to make a submission under the supervision of a faculty member.

JIPE is accepting submissions on a rolling basis to better meet the needs of researchers. Rolling submissions have many benefits, such as more timely dissemination of the research and a higher likelihood of the research study appearing in search results.

Humber Galleries is pleased to announce that Notes for Tomorrow, a travelling group exhibition is now open and on view at L Space Gallery (in the L Cottage at Lakeshore Campus) with additional work in the A Building Concourse.

This exhibition was conceived by Independent Curators International (ICI), and features artworks selected by 30 curators based in 25 countries around the world to reflect on a new global reality ushered in by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this cultural moment of transition, each work is a source of inspiration from the recent past and a guiding perspective for the future.  

Many of the artworks in the exhibition address spirituality as a grounding mechanism, sharing ways to make sense of the world when so much is in doubt. Some engage with specific mythology, while others reveal political structures that may or may not still be standing. The formation of monuments is questioned, and their removal is all but certain. The exhibition addresses art’s potential in the construction of collective memory in a global era. We learn the importance of sustaining and sharing different forms of knowledge, prompting us to re-imagine our conceptions of the future.  

Notes for Tomorrow was curated from selections by alumni of ICI’s Curatorial Intensive, a professional development program founded in 2010 on principles of international exchange, inclusivity, and knowledge-sharing. With the ever-present backdrop of a global pandemic, ICI turned to these curators to question and reassess values and relevance in contemporary culture, and asked each of them to share an artwork they believe is vital to be seen today. 

Location: L Space Gallery (L Cottage, Lakeshore Campus)

Hours: Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Centre for Human Rights, Equity, and Inclusion would like to wish you a Happy Lunar New Year! The Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, falls on January 22 and is an important celebration among East and Southeast Asian cultures. Tied to the lunar calendar, the holiday began as a time for feasting, honoring household, and heavenly deities, as well as ancestors. The New Year typically begins with the first new moon that occurs between the end of January and spans the first 15 days of the first month of the lunar calendar—until the full moon arrives.

2023 is the year of the Rabbit. The Rabbit is the fourth animal sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. The 12 zodiac animals are, in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each year has an animal sign according to the 12-year-cycle.

Students wishing to gather and celebrate are welcomed to attend events hosted by FYE (First Year Experience). Follow @humberlakeFYE and @humbernorthFYE on Instagram for event details.

We wish all staff, students, and loved ones a peaceful and healthy Lunar New Year.
