Please join us on November 23 when Rob MacIsaac, President of Mohawk College and Chair of the Council of Presidents, outlines the leadership role that Ontario’s 24 publically funded colleges must play in helping to build a highly skilled 21st century workforce. Rob will offer his perspective on why a new framework for postsecondary education is urgently needed to meet the fast-changing needs and rising expectations of students, employers and taxpayers.
Rob became the seventh President of Mohawk College in February 2009. Under Rob’s leadership, Mohawk has launched the largest campus renewal project in the college’s history, initiated the first environmental plan among Ontario colleges, established Mohawk as a leader in applied research in health and technology and forged a first-of-its-kind partnership with Sheridan College to co-locate programs. Rob currently serves as Chair of the Committee of Presidents – Colleges Ontario.
