October 2022 - Special issue


As we prepare to celebrate Concordia’s 50th anniversary in 2024-25, we also find ourselves in the homestretch of the Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen Now.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re well placed to address our campaign priorities and advance bold objectives for the benefit of our students and wider community of partners and stakeholders.

As you read the stories below, I hope you’ll take pride in the many ways our dedicated supporters are impacting Concordia’s future for the better.
