Throughout my career in the advancement sector, it’s been my privilege to be part of some remarkable achievements in post-secondary education.
My recent experiences at Concordia have deepened my faith in the power of donor support as a critical tool to benefit students, researchers and society.
There has never been a better time to be part of our university. Our original — and historic — $250-million goal for the Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen. Now has been extended with new financial and non-financial targets to align with the university’s 50th anniversary in 2024-25.
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to our community for its inspiring and enduring commitment to forward-looking teaching and learning. Thanks to our diverse network of dedicated supporters, I’m confident that we can surpass our ambitious goals and further secure our place as Canada’s next-generation university.
Exciting things are happening at Concordia — I hope you’re as proud to be a part of it as I am!
