Concordia University Parents Association
Parents Association Newsletter - Spring 2017

Dear parents,


Over the years, Concordia’s teaching, research and student life have been greatly supported by our many generous donors, which reflects our strong ties to the community.


We recently launched the Campaign for Concordia: Next-Gen. Now, our most ambitious fundraising campaign to date. This newsletter will help you discover how the campaign will strengthen our efforts to move forward as Canada’s next-generation university.


In addition to bringing you recent Concordia news and pointing you to many resources, this issue also provides a link to convocation-related information.


Join our Concordia Parents Association Facebook group to share resources, stories and advice with other parents.


We welcome your questions and comments at


With the long-awaited advent of spring, I wish you and your students a wonderful summer.
