On November 1, hundreds of thousands of men bid adieu to the facial-hair creations that previously comforted cheek, chin and upper lip. Then they embark on a journey of self-discovery: every day a bolder, bushier, more luxuriant upper-lip’s-worth of commitment bursts forth into life.

The Movember mission — to grow a moustache for the month of November — isn’t easy, but it’s important. Last year, almost one million “Mo Bros” and supportive “Mo Sistas” raised $131 million to combat men’s health issues like prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental illness. The worldwide charity campaign is now in its 11th year.

Are you sporting a mo' for the cause this year? If so, send your best moustache shots to now@concordia.ca and we'll feature them in an online gallery at the end of the month.

A moustache isn’t just a gizmo for a good cause: it’s an art form that, like so many others, our university excels at. These 15 Concordia moustaches show’em how it’s done. Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds!

Moustachioed police officers from Kuwait And, finally, some outside inspiration from 1979: a splendid assemblage of moustachioed police officers from Kuwait, with Doug Potvin and Gwen Cherrier from the Department of Continuing Education. The officers came to Montreal to study English at Concordia and learn about local police methods.
