Message from the Senior VP, Academic
Humber’s Academic Plan is all about student success. Focused on teaching and learning within a polytechnic, postsecondary environment, the plan outlines a series of goals and strategies that will guide our academic initiatives for the next five years.
The plan is highlighted by academic priorities, such as the expansion of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and the value of experiential learning. Further it is aligned with our Strategic Plan and our Strategic Mandate Agreement (SMA) with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and shows how our polytechnic focus is closely tied to effective strategic enrolment management.
The accompanying SEM Framework supports the achievement of a wide range of student and institutional outcomes, including the development of employer-responsive academic programming, to a focus on retention and successful outcomes for our students.
Humber remains committed to and focused on our mandate to provide teaching and learning excellence. We are accountable to our learners throughout their academic careers and to our graduates once they go out into the world. Therefore, this plan includes the essential integration of academic and non-academic programming. We are equally committed to providing access to academic programming that is of the highest quality, relevance and integrity, and to supporting the social and emotional well being of our students. We recognize that these activities are linked to the academic success of our students and the outcomes of our graduates. We will continue our collective efforts to support an unforgettable student experience both inside and outside the classroom that serves to enrich and inform.
We are pleased to share Humber’s inaugural institutional Academic Plan. We would like to thank the many members of the Humber community who engaged with us during the development process. We appreciate and are grateful for your daily commitment to our shared goal of helping our students succeed.
Senior Vice President, Academic
