About 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.
