Office of the VP, Research & Graduate Studies
Concordia’s research activities add $177 million annually to the Quebec economy. That’s why the Office of Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies (OVPRGS) takes great pride in serving and supporting the university’s researchers. The Office offers an array of services to help dedicated researchers and promote the results of their research — whether it’s maximizing funding opportunities, establishing international research partnerships or guiding them through the university’s policies and procedures.
Managing more than 100 graduate programs and 6,500 students, the Office also oversees admissions standards and graduation requirements. Since graduate students play a key role in research, the Office provides several services – from application to thesis – to support graduate students.

What We Do
Through the Office of Research, the Vice-President is responsible for research facilitation and promotion, including maximizing research funding opportunities, the development and implementation of policies related to research, technology transfer, and providing a full range of research services and support to Concordia researchers.
Through the School of Graduate Studies, students, faculty and administrators are guided through the academic and administrative components of Concordia's graduate programs. The School is also home to the Special Individualized Program, a unique interdisciplinary program that allows outstanding students to create their own program of study, drawing on research interests that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Through Concordia International, the Vice-President plays a leadership role in promoting (international) student mobility as well as international research initiatives.
