MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Building for our students and our community It was year of firsts for Mohawk College. In 2017-18, Mohawk became the first college in Ontario to open a Centre for Healthcare Simulation to better prepare students for their clinical placements and careers. Our college was also the first to launch a Centre for Climate Change Management in collaboration with our provincial and municipal partners to accelerate the move to a post-carbon economy. Our Centre for Student Success was the first among Canadian colleges and we expanded our game-changing City School. Mohawk students were the first at any postsecondary institution in Canada to train on next generation collaborative robots in our new FANUC Robotics Lab. We were also the first in Canada to offer an accessible media production program to help journalists and communications professionals create content for audiences with disabilities. Significant progress was made during the year on the construction of The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation. Regards

Ron McKerlie
