Dear Concordians,

2018 has been a standout year for our 50,000 students, 7,000 faculty and staff, and global network of more than 215,000 alumni.

As we look forward to the holiday season and 2019, I wanted to share a few highlights from the past six months:

All this positive news has generated a strong Stinger buzz – with demonstrable results:

  • For the third year in a row, Concordia had record applications and enrolment.
  • We’ve raised more than $160 M of our $250 M goal in the first year of our most ambitious fundraising effort ever – The Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen. Now.

I hope you’ll all take pride in these impressive accomplishments.

I wish you a restful winter break and a Happy 2019.

Alan Shepard
