Humber College’s five core values are courage, innovation, equity, health and well-being, and sustainability. These values guide and inform the decisions that best support our students, faculty, support staff, administration and the wider Humber community. With this in mind, Humber is engaging in an inclusive hiring initiative focused on increasing representation of Indigenous and Black full-time faculty members within the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences (FLAS).
The College is taking this step to better reflect the diversity of our community as we build a more inclusive workforce that is more representative of the wider community, in which Humber plays an integral role. This initiative will have a profound and positive impact on our learners and staff, especially those from equity deserving groups. Studies have demonstrated that when students have a sense of belonging their grades, as well as engagement, retention, and graduation rates increase. Seeing their communities reflected in their instructors will support inclusivity and belonging. It will have an equally important impact on Humber’s faculty and support staff as we build a more inclusive workforce that is more representative of the wider community of which Humber is a member.
This inclusive hiring initiative aligns with Humber’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, Employment Equity program, work completed by the Equity Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce and with the College’s Indigenous Education Plan. This hiring approach also meets the requirements of special programs under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
