Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen. Now.

$250-million campaign to advance Concordia

The Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen. Now, our university’s most ambitious appeal to date, will help us rethink higher-education teaching and research.


Dear parents,


I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincerest thanks to you and your families for joining me and other university representatives at the third annual Parents Tent held in August. More than 300 families participated in the information session and over 850 guests attended the sunset cocktail reception! It was a privilege to meet so many of you and we are already looking forward to next year’s welcome event. Check out our Flickr album for pictures from the event.


In addition to relevant stories and resources, this issue features a great article that gives students tips to network with their professors that can equally be applied to building valuable professional relationships outside the university.


To keep you up to date, we have created a Concordia Parents Association Facebook group. Please join us online with other parents to share resources, stories and advice.


Should you have any comments or questions about the Concordia University Parents Association, please feel free to email


I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to seeing great things from your students next semester!
