Mohawk College to work on "clear vision" for future in Brantford

April 5, 2011

Mohawk College representatives plan to meet with the City of Brantford, Nipissing University, Wilfrid Laurier University, and local school boards over the next few months to develop a "clear vision" for the future of Mohawk's programming in Brantford's core. Mohawk president Rob MacIsaac has said the Elgin Street location in Brantford is unsuitable for a college campus. Last September, the city rejected Mohawk's proposal to move its campus to the former Expositor building, deeming the $13.5-million price tag too steep. The institution is looking at a range of options, such as moving its programs to the Hamilton and Stoney Creek campuses, as well as the possibility of growing its presence in downtown Brantford. In the meantime, the college is guaranteeing students who start a program at the Brantford campus in September will finish their year there. Brantford Expositor
