The Faculty of Social and Community Services has launched a Social Innovation Survey to support the development of Humber’s Centre of Social Innovation.
The purpose of the survey is to solicit feedback from internal and external stakeholders to inform, shape and advance Humber’s Centre for Social Innovation. A broad range of stakeholders are invited to share their experiences, expertise, and perspectives including faculty, staff, students, community partners, and Program Advisory Committee members.
The Centre of Social Innovation will make up part of Humber’s network of Centres of Innovation (COIs) which is pioneering a new model of education that brings together interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and partners to solve complex, industry-relevant problems. Humber’s COIs are focused on ﬁve areas of strength and industry growth:
COIs foster experiential learning opportunities for Humber students and prepare them to become the innovative and strategic problem-solvers of tomorrow. Collectively, the COI Network bridges the gap between innovation and application, concepts and commercialization. The Network is supported by exceptional resources including six Faculties, each with a specialized focus; expertise in more than 180 program areas; 11 Centres of Excellence; and the Office of Research & Innovation.
