Collaborative Experiential Learning (CEL)

Work with tomorrow’s sustainability leaders to help solve your climate change and sustainability challenges today.

Through the Collaborative Experiential Learning (CEL) program, Mohawk is connecting local businesses to Mohawk students to work on corporate sustainability challenges. Currently offered in partnership with Sustainable Hamilton Burlington, Mohawk College students are prepared to learn, live and lead in a sustainable low-carbon economy.

The CEL program partners students with local businesses to work on smart, creative solutions to their greenhouse gas emission challenges and other sustainability problems - at no charge.

Prior to beginning a CEL project, students complete a free, 10-hour micro-credential. The “Climate Change Management for Business” course equips students with a basic knowledge of sustainability and climate change as it relates to the business sector, the challenges and benefits of climate management, as well as greenhouse gas reduction strategies.

To date, more than 200 students have participated in sustainability projects through this unique program in partnership with Sustainable Hamilton Burlington that benefits students, local businesses and communities.
