The University of Guelph-Humber (also known as UofGH) is a collaboration between the University of Guelph and Humber College. Established in 2002, it is located on Humber College's North Campus in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The university offers seven four-year undergraduate academic programs, each of which grants a university honours degree from the University of Guelph and a college diploma from Humber College. The university offers an Early Childhood Degree Completion program (BASc) and a Justice Studies Degree Completion program (BAA). These two degree completion programs allow professionals in the respective fields with a college diploma to earn their degrees while working.

Guelph-Humber Student Association[edit]

The UofGH Student Government is the Guelph-Humber Student Association (GHSA). The elected GHSA currently consists of five Executives, 14 Program Representatives, and a maximum of four non-voting Student Senators who represent UofGH on the University of Guelph Senate. The GHSA works with the Humber Students' Federation to provide services and activities to the students on campus. They are also responsible for annual events such as the Guelph-Humber Winter Formal. GHSA elections are held in the winter term of each year, usually in the beginning of March.[9]

At the annual Special Meeting of the Members on October 21, 2015, students voted that the GHSA would be merged with the HSF, Humber's student association, beginning in the 2016–2017 academic year. This results in the elimination of the GHSA executive roles, and adding a new executive position to the Humber board. This position is to be called the Vice-President of Student Affairs, Guelph-Humber. The program representatives will be maintained in the new system, but organized under the merged organization. HSF will also be changing its name, in the interest of not favouring one school over another.[10]
