Humber recently hosted a group of high school principals from Vietnam. Students from the Vietnamese Students’ Association, Humber faculty, and staff came together to honour this academic-cultural exchange.
James Cullin, the Associate Dean at Humber's Business School, said, "It was very obvious to me that international students who have come to Humber from Vietnam are having a wonderful experience with us. In truth they sold the quality of the Humber education they are receiving with such a level of passion, that I found myself just standing back and letting them do all the talking."
Humber was proud to share insights into our polytechnic approach to post-secondary education.
"The delegationhad never been on study tour to Canada before. Their visit to Humber represented a wonderful opportunity to highlight the value of polytechnic education we so expertly deliver here at Humber," said James.
The principals received a tour of Humber’s sprawling North Campus and a mouth-watering Vietnamese-Canadian-inspired dinner in the Seventh Semester.
"We enjoyed the facilities tour and the chance to interact with Humber's Vietnamese students. Also thanks for the lovely dinner and video presentations - the group really enjoyed seeing your students in action.It is clear the delegation was impressed with what they learned in Canada which, of course, was a major objective of the visit," said the trip organizer.
Events such as these reflect Humber’s cultural diversity and promote Humber’s global relationships.
