Mission Statement

The Senate Steering Committee is seeking suggestions for updating the text of the University’s mission statement. The statement has not been revised in a decade, and Senate wishes to suggest to the Board of Governors revisions so that the mission statement better reflects the University’s current reality, academic plans and directions.

Current Concordia University Mission Statement

Concordia is an urban university, which is responsive to the needs of a diverse student population as well as to the bilingual and multicultural environment in which it resides. It is a welcoming community where values of equality, non-discrimination and tolerance of diversity are appreciated and actively promoted. Furthermore, Concordia is committed to responsible and innovative leadership in fulfilling the mission of universities to develop and disseminate knowledge and values and to act as a social critic. The University seeks to achieve this end by offering its students inclusive and accessible academic programs which stress a broad-based interdisciplinary approach to learning as well as by a dedication to superior teaching supported by the best possible research, scholarship, creative activity and service to society. Through these means, the University prepares its graduates, at all levels, to live as informed and responsibly critical citizens who are committed to learning and to the spirit of enquiry.

Please submit your suggestions, in writing, by December 31, 2001, to Danielle Tessier, Secretary of the Board of Governors and Senate, by fax (848-8649) or
email (danielle.tessier@concordia.ca).
