Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, which also goes by the name of Humber College, is currently a public college/university located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Originally this college was founded in 1967. Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning only occupies two college campuses. The first one is called the Humber North campus and the second campus is known as Lakeshore.
After the established of the Humber institute in 1967 by the founding individual known as President, Gordon Wragg. While there was no main entrance to Humber College, the college did create the first main campus which opened during the month of September 1967. This 1967 opening took place at James S. Bell Elementary School, known as one of the original public spaces and college classrooms connected to Humber. The current campus known as Lakeshore equipped their prospects with new manpower with more students and more teachers all thanks to to a program designed by Queen Elizabeth II. However, the biggest campus out of the two would only open in November 1968 The given name of North Campus was officiated by the 1968 Mayor Edward A. Horton of Etobicoke along with the Mayor of York, Mr. Jack Moulton.
Not until the 1970s, enrollment for individuals which had stayed at a steady non-growth pace, would suddenly jolt around 1971. With this increase in the student population and with that, admissions has to expand to acquire hundreds of new students per semester. Humber institute had to eventually expand all their technology courses across both campus sites. Even business management and business law courses had rapidly expanded. As a matter of fact, this university ended up with one of the largest class of graduated business students in the province. This population surge allows a 3-year grant towards co-op programs that where developed around 1974, that branched out into field study subjects likes business, science, S.T.E.M. and technology. Leading into the 1980’s the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning ended up being Canada’s largest school that held past 30,000 full-time students and 60,000 students who only attended part of the time.
There are a near 150+ courses in multiple field study options available for students who are aiming at getting their bachelor’s degree, G.E.D, graduate certificate, or even the option of apprentice classes that have evolved across 45 different subjects taught at Humber.
