From the President

Welcome to this issue of Momentum in which we feature Mohawk College’s innovative, multidisciplinary and cutting-edge credentials.

We are proud of the breadth of education paths we offer our learners: diplomas or advanced diplomas, post-graduate certificates, micro-credentials, continuing and professional education programs and most recently, degrees.

Our philosophy is to meet learners where they are. In a world where education is a lifelong pursuit, Mohawk College is investing in optimizing learner choice through offering the greatest range of modalities possible.

We are also investing in the development of a range of micro-credentials—short and accelerated targeted learning options created in partnership with industry.

Our new Centre for Professional Advancement with the School of Health and Community Services is an incredible demonstration of Mohawk’s ability to rapidly meet emerging and future employer needs.

Delivering more than two dozen rapid, on-demand training programs for health-care workers, the centre is helping hospitals locally, provincially and nationally cope with staff shortages amid pandemic recovery. Many more programs are in the works.

And on the other end of the spectrum, Mohawk now offers two standalone degrees in Digital Health and Business Administration (Trades Management) and will add a Bachelor of Analytics and Data Management (Honours) in fall 2023.

We will continue to develop more career-ready degrees over the coming years. Differentiators for Mohawk degrees are our focus on interdisciplinary degrees that combine fields of expertise into unique offerings and our ability to deliver critical experiential learning opportunities.

We are also proud of the unique approach embedded in a new three-year Game – Design program coming next fall. It will combine design, technical and artistic skills, along with ethics, psychology and a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion.

Dive into this edition of Momentum to also read about our rapidly growing Aviation program, our leading-edge applied research and workforce development partnerships, and strategic work on climate change action.
