Faculty Handbook, Program Handbooks and Academic Regulations

Note: in most cases there are three handbooks for professors – the college’s Faculty Handbook, this guide, and the Program Handbook.

All professors should review the Humber Faculty Handbook which has been prepared by the Teaching + Learning Centre.

Some programs have a program handbook, which is a very useful tool for our professors and students. Each professor should become familiar with these program handbooks as they can refer students to these documents throughout the year for various reasons. In some cases, contracts to be signed by the students are included in the handbook. The co-ordinator will organize the distribution of a pdf of the program handbook to every professor and student in the program.

It is essential that professors follow the policies in a way that is in keeping with the overall Faculty and program or it can cause confusion for students and challenges for other professors (e.g. how we deal with late submissions of work, how we grade, the requirements that must be in place before a student can start a work placement, among many others).

It is also required that all employees are aware of and familiar with Humber’s Academic Regulations, Code of Conduct, Human Rights and other key Policies and Procedures.
