During a year of tremendous change, George Brown College stepped up with new programs, partnerships and initiatives that strengthened the positive impact we have on students, industry partners and the greater community. 

George Brown College’s 2020-21 Impact Report highlights how we continue to support our community and our partners while driving change and innovation. In the past year we played an important role in accelerating Ontario’s social and economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We trained frontline workers, launched new programs to meet the evolving needs of industry, and forged new community and industry partnerships. We also supported our students with enhanced digital learning and support services and increased opportunities for them to gain real-world experience with virtual work-integrated learning.  

All these initiatives, and others, are aligned with the goals of our Vision 2030, Strategy 2022 plan

“After seeing the incredible impact that George Brown made last year, I feel inspired and excited about what we can achieve in the year ahead," Dr. Gervan Fearon, President, George Brown College said. “Colleges have a vital role to play in training and talent development, helping businesses recover and advance, and getting our economy back on track. At George Brown, this focus defines our actions and our impact.” 

The creation of this year’s Impact Report provided hands-on experience for our students. The report was designed by Graphic Design students Natalie Franke and Emma Keat and Interaction Design student Tanya Khatcherian as part of the experiential learning initiative at George Brown’s IN Design studio.
