As director of Concordia's Centre for Continuing Education for the past eight years, Murray Sang has introduced professional career and web-based certificate programs and second-language courses, facilitated the expansion of community-based initiatives, such as the Summer Program in Management and Community Development and the University of the Streets Café, and struck key partnerships with industry, government and non-governmental organizations in both Canada and abroad.

Murray, who has been with the Centre for 21 years, was also enlisted as a volunteer in 1993 for the Concordia Shuffle and became the organizing committee's Chair in 2005. The Shuffle is the annual 6.5-km walk-a-thon from the Sir George Williams Campus to the Loyola Campus that draws about 400 members of the Concordia family to raise funds toward scholarships and bursaries .

Throughout the event's 18 years, thousands of Shufflers have raised close to $750,000 for some 300 deserving graduate and undergraduate students. Murray 's efforts have helped turn the Shuffle into a banner fundraising event the Concordia community looks forward to every year.

Murray earned both a BSc in 1976 and MBA in 1979 from McGill University. He also served as the Canadian Association of University Continuing Education's secretary-treasurer and is a member of Concordia's task force on student retention, the Commission de l'éducation des adultes du Conseil supérieur de l'éducation, Québec, and the Board of Governors of Montreal-based Dawson College.
