Message from the dean

Executive Dean Judeline InnocentWelcome students and prospective students!
On behalf of the faculty, administrative and support staff of the School of Health & Community Services, it is my pleasure to invite you to explore our website, where your virtual perusing will provide you with details of our programs, learning labs and resources. I believe you will get a real sense of the incredible facilities and resources that we offer to you. I also encourage you to call us directly with any other questions you may have about our programs and how they will meet your career aspirations.
The fact that you are considering or have chosen to extend your education at Durham College demonstrates your desire to learn at the premier college in Canada for career-focused students who succeed in a challenging, supportive and inclusive learning environment. It also shows your commitment to achieving personal and professional goals for your future.
It is not uncommon for students to experience some self-doubt or anxiety when pursuing post-secondary education. Please know that many of those who have gone before you have dealt with these very same feelings. Also, know that they have been rewarded by the same sense of accomplishment you will soon experience.
I want to assure you that a stimulating and enriching experience awaits you at Durham College. Much of what you will learn in our health and community service programs will build on your current life experiences. Our dedicated and professional teams of professors will guide your learning and provide you with a solid educational foundation that will prepare you for your chosen career path. For those who may be interested in pursuing a university degree, many of our programs have academic pathways to facilitate the completion of a college diploma and a university degree.
Of course, college life includes more than academic studies. Durham College offers many clubs and opportunities for developing a new network of friends. We hope you will take advantage of all our campus has to offer. At Durham College the student experience comes first and we are committed to working with you towards your success.
Warmest regards,
Dr. Judeline Innocent, RN
Executive Dean, School of Health & Community Services
