Mohawk College educates and serves more than 32,500 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, and has been named one of Canada’s greenest employers seven years in a row. In 2018, Mohawk adopted five equity, diversity and inclusion commitments to guide the college’s decisions on issues such as professional development and training, eliminating systemic racism and other forms of discrimination, addressing gender equity, advancing accessibility and attracting and retaining talent reflective of our community. More than 130,000 people have graduated from Mohawk since it was founded.
Commitment to Diversity
Mohawk College is committed to nurturing an equitable, diverse and inclusive environment for everyone who learns and works at our college. We believe the rich diversity among our students and the communities we serve should be reflected within our workforce, and that as educators we have a responsibility to act and show leadership in advancing the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in our community.
Vision for the Future
Creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive culture and environment for everyone who learns and works at our college is a key priority for Mohawk College. We are proud to partner with Pride at Work Canada and we look forward to being part of a growing network of organizations who are committed to advancing the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
As a college, I believe that we have a responsibility to play an active role in building a more equitable, diverse and inclusive community. Mohawk College has made this a priority and key element of its strategy and vision for the future, and we have a bold plan that will help us to achieve our goals.
