Seneca to the Horizon
In 1967, the year Seneca opened our doors for the first time, President William T. Newnham heralded the arrival of a new kind of postsecondary institution that was “imaginative in concept, flexible in scope and vast in promise.”
More than 55 years later, the boldness and innovation that vaulted Seneca into the front lines of higher education continue to drive us.
We went into the pandemic strong and are emerging stronger. With the agility, resilience and resourcefulness that have always been our hallmarks, Seneca accepted the challenge of a world turned upside down. We leaned into the possibilities presented by a forced, instant and comprehensive conversion to remote learning and working.
One of those opportunities was to engage our community to ask how Seneca could continue to thrive in the post-pandemic world of postsecondary education. And the result was Seneca Au Large – Seneca to the Horizon – as the foundation of our renewal.
Who We Are
At Seneca, we are a global community of many races, religions, genders, sexual orientations and ethnicities. We bring countless experiences, abilities, ways of learning and cultural backgrounds.
Our community has also experienced discrimination, abuse and barriers to education and security. This motivates us to be change-makers. To say we will do better.
Together, we share a common objective to build a better world for everyone.
We are proud to be building the equitable Seneca, and welcome applications from candidates who can contribute to the diversity of lived experiences, perspectives, and approaches. Joining Seneca means being part of an inclusive community working hard to dismantle barriers to access, student success, and employee potential.
We aim to instill the following core Seneca values in all our students, and modeled by all our employees:
In everything we do, in all ways, we treat each other with respect.
While we will always be flexible in our approach, we never compromise on quality and standards.
We understand now more than ever that the world is in constant evolution. We are always improving, innovating and looking ahead.
Everything we do – within Seneca and with our communities at home and abroad – we do best when collaborating with others.
Seneca celebrates our extraordinary diversity as an enriching strength and a competitive advantage in today’s global economy.
