The Board of Governors held its inaugural meeting on September 28, 1966 at which time the name of the College was discussed. For many years, there had been a strong desire to have a college in the City of Brantford. The Government decided that Hamilton was a more appropriate location and the College now serves the Golden Horseshoe, with campuses in Brantford, Stoney Creek, and Hamilton.
In 2012, Mohawk College developed an Academic Plan that considers the needs of our community and ensures that the College produces highly skilled graduates who will not just get jobs but also help to create them. Cross-functional and cross-disciplinary project teams have been tasked with bringing our Academic Plan's inspired ideas to achievable actions.
As of April 2014, twelve Academic Plan Project Teams have engaged in innovative design thinking to recommend actions that would advance the Academic Plan's five themes: Technology, Skills, Learning, Pathways, and Connections. Read the teams' status reports, talk to team members, participate actively in making Mohawk College a student-centred learning organization.
Mohawk College's uniquely inclusive and technologically-driven approach to education delivers both the theoretical and the practical. We bring faculty, students and industry together in a collaborative way that is at once productive, participative and progressive.
