A brief description of the campus-community council or equivalent body that gives external stakeholders a regular voice in institutional decisions that affect them:

Humber’s Lakeshore Campus has a committee called the Lakeshore Grounds. This is a group of all the landowners around Humber’s Lakeshore Campus to discuss issues in common including parking traffic, events, and construction. Humber presents campus building and design plans to the committee and the surrounding community for input. Committee meetings happen frequently and meet more than once a year. For example, the committee was heavily involved with the construction and development of Humber’s Cultural Hub at the Lakeshore Campus.

In addition, there is a Program Advisor Committee for each degree and diploma program that have experts from the industry who advise on and advance the curriculum directly.
