Welcome from UofGH Vice-Provost Dr. John Walsh

Dr. John Walsh

I want to enthusiastically welcome new and returning students to a new year at the University of Guelph-Humber. At UofGH, you are part of an innovative approach to higher education, one that mixes the best of theoretical and applied learning.

As the academic year begins, I encourage you to take full advantage of the many opportunities that are available on campus, both inside and outside of the classroom. In our lecture rooms, you’ll learn from experienced faculty who are experts in their fields. Our small class sizes will allow to get to know classmates who are passionate about the same topics that you are. When class is out, look into the many clubs and student societies that we have on campus — you’ll be amazed by how many other students share your interests. Eventually, you will want to explore our Study Abroad program, which will give you the opportunity to expand your horizons and learn alongside your peers while travelling to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring destinations.

Beyond the classroom, you’ll also have the chance to put your skills to work during a field placement or internship. In addition to giving you an introduction to working in your field, this opportunity will help you build your resumé, establish your professional network, and prepare you to enter the working world.

UofGH grows and thrives each year because of the quality and dedication of our faculty, staff, alumni, and of course, our students. Thank you for choosing to join us. I wish you much academic success in the year to come.


Dr. John Walsh, Vice-Provost
