President and CEO
“In a rapidly evolving world that often pushes the boundaries of possibility, conventional practices in post-secondary education are not enough. It will take a bold approach, the courage to transcend tradition and a pioneering spirit to reimagine our future.” Humber College Strategic Plan
Humber College is actively seeking its next President and CEO to lead the College boldly and courageously in its next evolution of possibility. Join a community of committed and passionate staff, faculty, students and partners.
Humber is one of Canada’s leading post-secondary institutions, located in Toronto – one of the most diverse cities in the world. Humber College is located within the traditional and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Known as Adoobiigok, the “Place of the Alders” in Michi Saagiig language, the region is uniquely situated along Humber River watershed, which historically provided an integral connection for Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples between the Ontario Lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe/Georgian Bay regions. Now home to people of numerous nations, Adoobiigok continues to provide a vital source of interconnection for all.
Transforming post-secondary education through global, polytechnic leadership, Humber is one of five Ontario colleges designated an Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and is one of two Canadian institutions with a seat on the board of The League for Innovation in the Community College. With a 50+ year history of providing high quality post-secondary education and as a founding member of Polytechnics Canada, Humber College provides a rich academic experience for its more than 38,000 full-time students and 19,000 part-time and professional learners across three campuses and online. Providing a broad range of career-focused credentials and well-established pathways between them, Humber is committed to the success of its learners through excellence in teaching and learning. Humber’s award-winning faculty has advanced academic credentials, industry experience and employs the latest technology and teaching methodologies in state-of-the-art labs and classrooms that simulate a real-world working environment. The College’s polytechnic approach and its partnerships with industry, community agencies, and other educational institutions, provides students with access to industry leaders and career-relevant work experiences.
Reporting to the Board of Governors, the President and CEO is responsible for capturing, developing, and articulating the vision of the college community, and for ensuring academic and administrative policies are in place and implemented to support this overarching vision. Guided by the strategic and academic plan, the President advances the College’s academic presence to ensure that students experience transformative education in a dynamic, collaborative, and supportive learning environment. The President is the academic and administrative leader and champion of Humber’s mission, inspiring and supporting the faculty, administration, staff and students at the College. Having accountability for the effective operational and fiscal management of the College, the President ensures prudent budget planning, including resource allocation in accordance with the College’s strategic plan. As primary ambassador for the College, the President represents the College externally through partnership-building regionally, nationally and internationally and engages with key stakeholders including community partners, donors, government and academic institutions.
