A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution, including how each program addresses the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability:

Humber’s Global Citizenship Certificate program is a cross-college, multi-disciplinary program designed to accommodate currently enrolled students from all Academic Schools. Envisioned as a “global backpack” or a set of courses and experiences that students can fit into their current studies, the program requires students to deepen their understanding of sustainability, human diversity, interconnectedness, cultural complexity, and enhance their sense of personal and community responsibility.
