Brampton to share details on University of Guelph-Humber campus plans
Published February 15, 2022 at 10:09 am
The City of Brampton will be giving an update on its efforts to bring a University of Guelph-Humber campus to the city.
Brampton Councillors Rowena Santos and Paul Vicente will be hosting an info session on Wednesday to give residents a chance to learn more about the University of Guelph-Humber’s (UofGH) possible move to Brampton.
The info session is on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m., and interested residents can register for the virtual meeting by visiting Standup4Brampton.com/Guelph-Humber.
Two senior representatives from UofGH and the University of Guelph will also be on hand at the meeting to give an update on the proposed campus relocation.
In June, city council unanimously supported a motion to work with the University of Guelph and Humber College to bring the UofGH to Brampton’s Centre for Innovation (CFI).
City staff and both of the post-secondary institutions have been tasked with identifying required supports and business terms for the potential relocation of the campus.
University of Guelph-Humber offers combined degree-diploma programs, where students earn a Humber diploma and a bachelor’s degree from Guelph over the course of four years.
The institution says it gets more applicants from Brampton than from any other city in Ontario.
UofGH programs in Brampton would complement Ryerson University’s planned medical school in Brampton’s innovation district.
The area also houses programs offered through Algoma University and Sheridan College, as well as Ryerson’s cybersecurity ventures program.
