Teaching & Learning

Excellence in teaching is what Huron's reputation has been based on since 1863. Our approach is built on providing our graduates with opportunities to develop competencies that will prepare them to be resourceful, adaptable, compassionate, and informed members and leaders of their communities, prepared to see issues from a multiplicity of perspectives and to exercise careful judgement in decision-making.
