As we plan for the future of the Humber College Lakeshore Campus, it is important to consult and include all voices in our community as we move through the process.
Humber’s Faculty of Social and Community Services (FSCS) launched a Social Innovation Survey to support the development of the Centre of Social Innovation (CSI), which will be housed at the Lakeshore campus.
The CSI will be part of Humber’s network of Centres of Innovation, which brings together faculty, students and partners, to tackle real-world challenges in health and wellness, technology, business and entrepreneurship, in addition to social innovation.
Thanks to everyone who completed the CSI survey for their help in creating positive change in our community.
Respondents identified employment, education and training, reduced inequalities and poverty reduction as critical priorities to explore. In addition, more than half of those community members said that they could see themselves being directly involved in social innovation work as participants, volunteers or principal investors.
This is good news and indicates that we’re headed in the right direction.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can participate in social innovation and the CSI, please contact Stephanie Byer, Manager of International and Strategic Initiatives, FSCS, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
