From the President
Powerful employer relations prepare our students and graduates.
We could not graduate future-ready students, or lead the way on applied research, or tackle community issues without the deep and meaningful partnerships we havebuilt with employers.
Building on these powerful partnerships, we will work together with employers to recover from the devastatingeffects of the pandemic, forging new growth and capturingnew opportunities.
Key to our employee partnerships is the college’s strategic priority to embed work integrated learning opportunities in 100 per cent of our more than 160 programs. We simply cannot make that happen, or prepare our students for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs, without our invaluable employer partners.
They also work alongside us in program development and review, they contribute financially and in-kind to our cutting-edge labs and centres of excellence, and they partner with us on applied research, accelerating us to the top 10 for research colleges across Canada.
Recently, we launched our one-of-a-kind Future Ready Premium Employer Program. This strategic initiative optimizes and elevates our employer partnerships transforming our college and our local economy at a critical time in our history.
We are so proud of and grateful for our multi-layered connections with employers and excited to see just how far we can take them.
Ron J. McKerlie
Mohawk College President
