Lowy and Danis meet with La Presse journalists

Rector Frederick Lowy and Vice-Rector Marcel Danis paid a visit to the editorial offices of La Presse last week. They were welcomed by adjunct editorial page editor, Claudette Tougas, editorialist Agnès Gruda and the new chief education reporter Marie-Claude Malboeuf. They were accompanied by Public Relations Director Laurie Zack and francophone Media Officer Evelyne Abitbol.

Lowy and Danis presented an overview of Concordia's place in the university spectrum and some of the innovative approaches we have taken to academic, budget, space and institutional planning. They also explained Concordia's progress in inter-university cooperation and the striking success of our Capital Campaign.

The La Presse editors were particularly interested in our ability to maintain stable enrolment, the impact of government funding cutbacks and ongoing CREPUQ and government committees examining academic program rationalization. They also took note of some of our initiatives in Internet course delivery and international recruitment.
