Guelph-Humber unlocks operational review

The 2017 operational review.

Published

Eli Ridder | Report

The University of Guelph-Humber’s Operational Review, a document largely brought together in late 2017 that broadly outlines the status of the institution, has been unlocked for the general public to access again.

The review was published in early 2018 after stakeholders including students, staff and faculty were able to have their say on various aspects of the university and its current standing as a partner of the University of Guelph and Humber College.

One critical finding of the review, which was conducted by outside firm Deliotte, was that the Guelph-Humber building was at its physical limits, and “there is a need to find new space in order to grow.”

“This includes the option of moving the campus to a new site, which was described as currently being actively explored,” the report finds. This is also corroborated by a GH360 report that found the maximum capacity had been reached.

Guelph and Humber administrators have not yet said publicly whether there is any movement on moving the university to a larger space or where that would be. The Avro Post has reached out for comment but there has yet to be a response.

After the review was published, it was locked and inaccessible, according to several students familiar with the matter, but has recently been opened up again for access on the University of Guelph-Humber website.

The Avro Post has reached out for comment to find out why it was unlocked again, but it could be in part due to being linked in a GH360 story. GH360 is an assignment-based student publication produced by students in the Media Studies program.

    The link for the operational review is turning up a “page not found” on the GH website aka they removed it. Disappointing

Humber College said it is monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak and its “potential impact on the institution” in a statement posted online last week and updated on Monday.

Toronto Public Health told the college that “there are no particular actions required” at this time.

A special group tasked with keeping the campus community informed on the latest precautions for the virus has been established, made up of stakeholders from various departments and the University of Guelph-Humber.

Humber points students, staff and faculty to the Ontario Ministry of Health website’s dedicated webpage for updates.

The college’s announcement also asked that those on campus “wash their hands as frequently as possible” due to it being the winter flu season.

As of Tuesday morning in Ontario, there is one confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, one “presumptive” case and 11 cases under investigation. ■
