Mohawk and Sheridan Colleges to co-locate programs at each other's campuses

February 29, 2012

On Tuesday, Mohawk and Sheridan Colleges formalized an MOU -- the first of its kind in Ontario -- that will see the 2 institutions explore opportunities to co-locate programs at each other's campuses in their respective areas of academic strength. "Our partnership is a clear example of how differentiation can work within the Ontario college system," says Mohawk president Rob MacIsaac. "By concentrating in our areas of academic strength, we can offer students a wider selection of high quality, industry-connected programs closer to home." Sheridan president Jeff Zabudsky says the historic agreement "will expand the postsecondary options currently available to students in these regions, while also helping to ensure that a full suite of diploma, certificate and degree programs will continue to be accessible as Sheridan moves towards its vision of becoming an undergraduate teaching university." The first co-located program will be a 2-year Insurance Diploma offered by Mohawk at Sheridan's Hazel McCallion campus in Mississauga. Sheridan News Release | Hamilton Spectator | Mississauga News
