Mohawk College proposes becoming Ontario's first specialized Institute of Health and Technology

October 15, 2012

In its draft strategic mandate agreement sent to the Ontario government, Mohawk College proposes becoming the province's first specialized Institute of Health and Technology. Serving the western Greater Golden Horseshoe Region (Peel, Halton, Hamilton, Brant, and Niagara regions), the new Mohawk Institute of Health and Technology would offer apprenticeship, certificate, diploma, and 3-year degree programs. The college's other priorities include excelling in applied research and transforming lives through access. Mohawk aims to serve as Ontario's hub for applied research in health and technology and deliver commercialization and entrepreneurial skills training. To improve PSE access, the institution would create and bolster programming for underrepresented groups (including a new downtown Hamilton centre for disengaged youth), deliver all programs in a format that combines the best of in-class and online learning, and boost the number of part-time programs.
