The President’s Classic Golf Tournament with Mohawk College
For Mohawk College, the President’s Classic Golf Tournament was more than just a golf tournament it was a fabulous way for staff, partners and community members to reconnect not only socially but for a very important cause – student wellness.
On September 22, 2022 one hundred and thirty golfers participated in the Mohawk President’s Golf Classic at Heron Point Golf Links, Alberton, Ontario with the goal of raising $30,000 for student mental health resources and service, an urgent priority on campus.

30% of young adults feel they need professional mental health help but cannot access services. Proceeds from the 2022 President’s Golf Classic will help provide students with additional mental health resources and services, which is an urgent priority on campus today. The Counselling and Wellness area recently transformed spaces for students to better serve the challenges students are facing. These funds will continue to ensure resources are available to assist students in need to help support them and their academic journey.
TCI works with Mohawk College to help support student health, well-being and performance in schools, colleges and universities.
