commentsHAMILTON (Sept. 18, 2015) – A draft of Mohawk College's new strategic plan is up for comment and review until Oct. 16.

With a vision of Future Ready. Learning for Life, Mohawk's 2016-2020 strategic plan identifies 17 priorities that include reducing financial barriers and delivering an education that transforms Mohawk students into the most experienced and employable college graduates.

The draft plan was written following months of consultation with students, faculty, staff and community partners and will go to Mohawk’s Board of Governors for final review and approval in November.

“We've drafted a bold plan that will challenge and inspire us to make a great college even better for our students, their future employers and the communities we serve,” says President Ron McKerlie. “We’re inviting the community to review our plan and help chart the future of their community college.”
