Welcome to Spring 2023 InTouch Magazine

Impacting our community

At the college and in the community, Mohawk College alumni are committed to giving back in many ways. They are taking the knowledge and skills they learned in our classrooms and making connections and supporting others through volunteering or working in community service fields.
