Students to debut documentary about newcomer youth surviving trauma

Mohawk's Board of Governors this week approved a $158 million balanced budget for the College's fiscal year beginning April 1st. President Rob MacIsaac and the College's Senior Management Team hosted town hall meetings at every campus Thursday and Friday. A note from Rob will be distributed to all staff Monday morning. "Getting our financial house in order now allows us to stay focused on teaching and serving students," says Rob. The budget, balanced at a time of flat-lining government grants and rising costs, includes an $8.8 million reinvestment in priority areas for Mohawk that will benefit students. To reduce $5.5 million in salary expense, Mohawk will carry out a series of strategies to minimize the impact on staff, including not filling vacant positions and not replacing staff as they retire and leave the College.
