Over the past 50 years, Mohawk College has transformed from the Provincial Institute of Textiles (PIT) 1947 to the Hamilton Institute of Technology (HIT) 1957 and finally opening in 1967 as Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology.

The 50th Anniversary, will provide an incredible opportunity to reflect on our past, celebrate the present and embrace the future with a goal to renew and strengthen our commitment to students, donors and the community.  Our remarkable team of Mohawk College faculty and staff have proudly educated and served generations of students and continue to transform lives.  By supporting The Start of Something Amazing, you will provide inspiration to our community of learners and show them that an investment in Mohawk is an investment in their future.  This three year campaign is set to raise $500,000 to fund student awards that will increase access, foster social inclusion and build student leadership so that we can continue to transform students into graduates with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
