Concordia University

Concordia University, formed by a merger in 1974, is welcoming, engaged, and committed to innovation and excellence in education, research, creative activity and community partnerships. It dares to be different and draws on its diversity to transform the individual, strengthen society and enrich the world.

Concordia’s core values stem from those long prized by its founding institutions, Loyola College and Sir George Williams University. Concordia adopted the motto of the city of Montreal, Concordia salus, which speaks to well-being through harmony. The union of two very different institutions of higher education has led to an exceptionally successful synthesis of compatible and timely values.

The University’s future development is informed by its 9 strategic directions, which guide the work of designing a next-generation university. These 9 directions include doubling their research, delivering a next-generation education, increasing experiences outside of the classroom, being inventive and enterprising, achieving public impact through research and learning and going the extra mile for their community.

Concordia seeks to foster a vibrant and supportive research environment that values the very diverse nature of all research done by Concordia faculty. It does so through its internal funding programs as well as through strategic level investments. The university’s Canada Research Chairs (CRC) and Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Strategic Research Plan seeks to further mobilize excellence in our major areas of research strength by building on established and emerging areas of critical mass where additional investment is required in order to maintain or build capacity. The plan was informed by internal policies and an analysis of Concordia’s major research strengths.

Concordia has expertise in health, cities, digital arts, AI, aerospace, and synthetic biology.
