The idea was for a university and a college to join forces. Welcome to the University of Guelph-Humber.
When UofGH opened its doors in 2002, the intention was to produce a well-prepared university graduate.
The world was changing. Expectations were changing. Having the theoretical knowledge and analytical skills acquired through a university education and the applied skills acquired through a college education seemed the perfect answer.
And, as they say, the rest is history.
It’s not just the credentials, it’s what they prepare you for.
Our students graduate with skills designed for today’s world. It’s the blend of theoretical and applied learning that sets us apart. That’s why our students graduate with credentials from both the University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning - two of Canada’s leading postsecondary institutions.
But the significance of this education is why we’re here.
Our students have the skills, knowledge and credentials to pursue graduate school, or begin their career immediately following graduation. This dual focus is entrenched in our core.
It reveals itself in our classrooms, in the hours of field placement, in our faculty who are both academic and field experts, in our networking opportunities, in our small class sizes, in our international study opportunities, and in our research.
Everything we do is about preparing our students for the today that we know, and for the tomorrow that we don’t. It’s the most relevant and efficient postsecondary education we can offer.
