New partnership provides hands-on learning
The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills and Mohawk College Open Student-run Fitness Centre
October 1, 2018 (HAMILTON, ON) - Mohawk College is expanding a partnership with The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills on Hamilton Mountain with the opening of a new student-run fitness centre.
The on-site fitness centre will help villagers meet their health and wellness goals while giving real world experience to students in Mohawk’s Health, Wellness and Fitness program. The clinic will offer placements for up to 16 students throughout the year. Students will work with villagers on circuit training, clinics and classes and offer personal fitness assessments.
In June 2017, Mohawk opened a student-run massage therapy clinic. More than 100 residents visit the clinic monthly for hour-long massages.
Mohawk College educates and serves more than 29,500 full-time, part-time, apprenticeship and international students at three main campuses in Hamilton, Ontario and learning hubs across Hamilton through City School by Mohawk, and at the College’s Centre for Aviation Technology at the Hamilton International Airport. Mohawk is among the top five colleges for applied research in Canada. It has been named one of Canada’s greenest employers seven years in a row, holds a GOLD STARS rating from AASHE for sustainability achievements and is home to the country’s largest and first institutional building to receive dual certification for Zero Carbon Building Framework design and performance for The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation. More than 135,000 people have graduated from Mohawk since it was founded.
