The University of Guelph-Humber opened in 2002, a result of the collaboration of two highly acclaimed academic institutions, the University of Guelph and the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
The objective was to combine the strengths of the two institutions and offer students an education that focused both on theory as well as practical experience.
