Concordia University Parents Association
Parents' newsletter

Dear parent,


I am delighted to welcome you to the first digital Concordia University Parents Association newsletter; I hope you will find it useful, interesting and inspiring.


Concordia is a vibrant university with unique opportunities for students to explore their passions and grow.


As a parent, I am keenly aware of the desire to help our students succeed in university life. This newsletter is designed to help you support your child as he or she navigates the university and the broader community; keep you informed of the numerous services available to students; and share campus news and stories.


As we build a robust Concordia parent community, I invite you to participate in the life of our university by attending alumni events in Montreal and around the world and learning more by downloading our Concordia Parents Association Handbook [PDF].


I hope you enjoy this newsletter and that it sparks continued interest in, and support of, our university. Should you have any comments or questions about the Concordia Parents Association, please feel free to contact us at


In case you haven’t seen it, our Guide to First Year is filled with useful information.


I wish you and your family a lovely summer.
