Event description
Join Humber for a day of social innovation where we will engage you in a different kind of community advisory experience.

About this Event

Humber College is hosting a full-day social hackathon to address access to higher education issues. This hackathon is for our community, school and industry partners who collaborate with us on projects, initiatives, interventions that advance access to higher education for individuals in our communities who face barriers to higher education, and as a result, entry into a highly skilled Canadian workforce.

As one of our valued partners, this Hackathon is the perfect opportunity to share your expertise and to help us develop systems-thinking solutions for post-secondary access issues.

The morning will focus on situating the problem, the need and the opportunity as it relates to access to higher education being a crucial driver of economic and social development.

In the afternoon, after being equipped with information and resources, you will be placed on cross-sectoral teams to design systems solutions to one of four access issues posed along the higher education student cycle.

This event will have a great keynote, many opportunities to network, and generate solutions and ideas that will help us to collectively move the dial forward on post-secondary access.
