Concordia is developing a digital strategy. This is just one of the transformational projects being under undertaken in 2019-20 as part of the Strategic Directions Initiative to position Concordia as a next-generation university.
To engage faculty, staff and students in this process, the university is bringing a diverse group of thought-leaders to the university as part of the Concordia President’s Speaker Series on Digital Futures. They will share their experience and insights to spark conversations and reflections in an effort to develop a shared vision for Concordia's digital futures.
This event is open to the public and there is no charge.
