Student Leadership

Who are MoCrew?

Our leadership program is borderless in nature and designed to acknowledge that all students can be student leaders. As soon as you take that first step in your leadership journey, whether that's volunteering on campus, attending a leadership workshop, or simply signing up to learn more, you have already joined the MoCrew community!

"Every student leader is MoCrew and every MoCrew member has something to contribute to the college community, regardless of formal training or titles."

All students who engage in student leadership and learning experiences as a member of MoCrew, each with various lived experiences and levels of leadership development. The MoCrew team is relational, rather than hierarchical, recognizing that all students bring different leadership experiences and competencies to the table. We utilize storytelling as a reflective practice for students to articulate their learning and individual leadership development as they move through different experiences in their leadership journey.

Leadership Learning Goals

The Student Leadership Program at Mohawk College aims to create intentional learning opportunities for students as they explore their personal leadership, throughout their journey as a Mohawk College Mountaineer. It creates spaces for students to be their authentic self and recognizes that all Mohawk College students can be student leaders.

Honouring Identity

Navigating Relationships

Serving Community

The MoCrew experience is broken into three learning goals, or pillars: Navigating Relationships, Serving Community and Honouring Identity. Each leadership opportunity, workshop, or program is designed with these three pillars in mind, including learning experiences that support students as they navigate key functions of the student experience. This approach takes into consideration the transitions that students experience throughout their academic journey and looks to provide space for students to not only acknowledge those periods of change but also to reflect on their impact.

Above all else, MoCrew invites students to join a community where the whole of every person is honoured, valued, and celebrated.
