Let your voice be heard.
Did you know that here at IGNITE, we’re accountable to you, the students? It’s true! Everything we do is with you in mind, and we create our services, events, and supports based on your feedback. That’s why it’s important for us to share what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and see how students feel about it.
We want your input on a few changes proposed by our student-led Board of Directors, to make your post-secondary experience the best it can be.
One of the changes to be proposed at the meeting is an update to the make-up of our board to include 3 directors from North, Lakeshore and Guelph-Humber in future elections, to ensure students at each campus are heard and equally represented. Although our board used to include representation from the Orangeville campus, as of 2020 this campus is no longer in use by Humber College, so the board no longer requires representation from this campus. Due to this, our Governance Committee has proposed to go forward in future elections with the same number of directors across each active campus. As explained by Vice-Chair Aashi Jhunjhunwala, “When a board member is elected, they represent IGNITE and advocate for every student on campus. Hence each campus will get equal representation.”
