Posted on November 8, 2017

Concordia in the news features stories of Concordians who appear in the news. Discover alumni, students, faculty and experts who recently made an impact in the media.


Current students at Concordia do outstanding academic work and get involved in community projects that improve our quality of life. See what they've been up to:  

  • The Concordia Student Union posts a release on CNW/Telbec announcing that two Concordia students, CSU coordinator Omar Riaz and Sarah Abou-Bakr, also with the CSU, will deliver letters signed by fellow-Concordia students, to the Montreal office of Quebec Justice Minister Stéphanie Vallée. The letters denounce the provisions of Bill 62 that prohibit face coverings in public services in Quebec. 
  • Huffington Post Canada writes about young Syrians who have come to Canada to find a new life through university study and features two new Concordia students: Dunia Al Mehlm, who arrived in Montreal from Al Salam School in Reyhanli-Turkey last December on a Concordia scholarship, and Mohamad Sarhan, also a Syrian refugee on a Concordia scholarship, studying in computer engineering.
  • Concordia doctoral candidate in film and moving images studies, Theo Stojanov talks to Myanmar's Mizzima about film censorship in Myanmar and elsewhere in south-east Asia.
