"As the school year comes to a close and summer begins our students, staff and faculty are working on exciting research, improving their communities and highlighting campus facilities through events like "Doors Open Toronto". I hope you enjoy learning more about our school and consider sharing with me the ways in which you are making a difference. Enjoy these stories, and if you have one of your own you would like to share, click here."

Natasha Bogle graduated from the Child and Youth Worker program at Humber with honours in 2006, but has been changing lives since she was a child.
Did you know that Humber participates in the Textbooks for Change program? This program was set up by former School of Social & Community Services support staff member, Jem Cain (one of Humber’s Green ambassadors). In acknowledgement of her efforts, Humber will be presenting her with the Sustainability Award at the annual President’s Breakfast in August.
Apart from our domestic Work-Integrated Learning opportunities, students in the School of Social & Community Services are encouraged to apply their knowledge and skills as global citizens. This 2015/2016 school year, 15 students from across the School proposed and engaged in their own unique field placements. In collaboration with the School, each of these students developed field placement experiences in Guyana, Australia, South Africa, USA, Jamaica, Philippines, and Germany. If you know of students who might be interested in these opportunities, please connect with your Placement Coordinator or the Placement Manager for more details.
The School of Social & Community Services has expanded their partnership agreement with the University of Gloucestershire to allow for students to engage in the rich experience of field placements in the United Kingdom.
Was it a crime of passion? Could it have been a burglary gone wrong? Might it have been bad business? These were the questions posed to visitors at Humber’s Centre for Justice Leadership this spring for Doors Open 2016.
Starting Fall 2016, Humber’s Cyber Crime Specialist program will focus on the subject of technology and the internet as a means of criminal behaviour and how the immediacy of a world-wide connection, speed and privacy concerns pose a danger to communities and individuals. The program also delves into how these potential dangers can be managed by Cyber Crime Specialists.
Starting Fall 2016, Humber will be home to the "Mindfulness Studies" program. This program will help participants learn more about emerging mindfulness trends and their influence on psychotherapy, medical, educational and corporate settings. Participants will learn various approaches, practices and influences, as well as the ethics and attitudes associated with living an awake and mindful life.
