Message from the Dean
I am honoured to serve as interim dean of Graduate Studies, especially at a time when Concordia’s increasing number of graduate students are an integral element in the actualization of our strategic directions.
The School of Graduate Studies plays many roles within Concordia. It functions as a knowledge-broker, a forerunner and a source of guidance for our students, researchers, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff. As we move into this new decade amidst global change and rapidly advancing technology, it is profoundly important that we evolve while remaining true to Concordia’s values of accessible, relevant education and innovative research. We are well-equipped to handle these challenges. Concordia is home to two campuses, state-of-the-art facilities, dedicated staff and renowned faculty. Our incredible diversity encourages ingenuity, open dialogue and a vibrant culture. Our academic partnerships foster collaboration and innovation. The School of Graduate Studies is well-placed to initiate change and support Concordia’s goals.
I look forward to working with Concordia’s community to attract, retain and support the brightest minds from across the globe, to develop and support new curriculums in line with the changing world, to build and strengthen our dialogue with the public and to adopt new technologies in support of greater access to education and services.
