Humber College will join the University of Guelph-Humber and other post-secondary institutions across the province in implementing a fall reading week for the semester starting in September 2019.

The week off will take place starting on Oct. 21, offering students a “deep breath in the middle of every semester to assess the learning that has taken place”, Humber administrator Gina Antonacci said in an email to students on Monday.

Guelph-Humber had its first fall reading week last October and the university and college will go along the so-called “7-1-7” model, meaning seven weeks of classes, one week off and another seven weeks.

The Humber email to students also defined that the new break aligns with the college’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, a program designed to improve student life and academic excellence through several pillars — with the change falling under health and wellness.
