Humber College, one of the largest colleges in Canada, officially unveiled its Gratitude Hall - a key area of the college dedicated to celebrating and recognizing its supporters, alumni and friends.
The name ‘Gratitude Hall’ was selected to convey the importance and significance of the term and the College’s desire to show appreciation to its supporters who are committed to make Humber a great place for students to learn, grow and thrive.
The centerpiece of the Gratitude Hall is Humber’s first donor and alumni recognition wall that includes a physical donor wall with recognition tiles and a digital immersive technology system that consists of five large touch screens.
The design inspiration behind the recognition system comes from the College’s connection to the Humber River and the surrounding campus green spaces. Each tile represents a single stone in the riverbed, the foundation of the river, presenting the generosity and support provided by donors. The students are represented by the water, flowing through the College as they advance in their career journey. The ways in which light interacts with the varying depths and finishes replicates the river’s flowing water creating an ever-changing, shimmering surface forming a memorable image.
The hall is a visual celebration of Humber’s individual, corporate, foundation, donor and strategic partnership investments, as well as recognize the ongoing support of community associations and societies for the College.
Vretta Inc., a global leader in math education technology solutions, was recognized in the Gratitude Hall for its ongoing commitment to the highest quality math education in making Humber College a great place for students to learn, grow and thrive.
