Concordia University

Concordia University is a large, urban university in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The university’s two campuses are set approximately 7 km apart: Sir George Williams campus in the downtown core of Montreal, and Loyola campus in the residential west-end of Montreal. They are connected by a free shuttle bus service for students, faculty and staff.

The University currently employs over 2,000 academic personnel, including full-time and part-time faculty, many of whom are professionals drawn from the artistic community, high-tech industries, and the business world, as well as a number of professional librarians. Through their wide range of experience, these members of academic staff ensure that Concordia students will receive broad exposure to qualified professionals in their chosen areas of study.

From its roots as a teaching institution, Concordia has developed a strong research profile that builds upon the expertise represented in its faculty.

Concordia promotes an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to learning, with a strong tradition of part-time education. We have a diverse student body of nearly 45,000 students from more than 150 countries.

The vibrancy of the Concordia community reflects its urban and multicultural environment in the heart of Montreal. This openness to the world and to new ideas inspires the University to develop an international approach to learning, research, and social responsibility.

History

Concordia University has been in existence since 1974, but its two founding institutions — Loyola College and Sir George Williams University — have a considerably longer history.

The name of the university comes from the motto of the City of Montreal, “Concordia Salus,” which means “well-being through harmony.”

In 1968, in the wake of the Parent Commission Report, the Quebec government asked Loyola and Sir George Williams to consider some form of union. Negotiations began in 1969 and continued on and off over the next four years.

While a number of possible models were considered, including that of a loose federation, the solution finally adopted was that of an integrated institution, Concordia University, operating under the existing Sir George Williams charter. The legal existence of Concordia dates from August 24, 1974.

Faculties

Concordia has four faculties and a School of Graduate Studies, as well as numerous colleges, centres and institutes. Find out more about each faculty and unit on our Faculties page or go directly to the faculty and unit website via the links below:

Art and Culture

Concordia’s three art galleries present professional and student-run exhibitions, provide research space and house important permanent collections.

The Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery, located in Concordia’s McConnell Library Building, presents exhibitions of contemporary Canadian and international art, produces related publications and organizes a program of artist and curator talks, public debates, concerts and film screenings. It is also home to a permanent collection that comprises nearly 1700 works by mainly Canadian artists, created over the course of the 20th century.

The FOFA Gallery is an exhibition and research space that celebrates the excellence of Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts and reflects its creative diversity, activities and interests.

The VAV Gallery is a democratically run student exhibition space, the only one of its kind in Canada, that offers a glimpse into the sensibilities of a new generation of visual artists to both the Concordia community and the wider Montreal public.

Recreation and Athletics

The Department of Recreation and Athletics’ facilities can be found on both campuses.

The Loyola campus facility is the focal point of Stingers varsity sports and intramural leagues. It also hosts a small number of instructional activities. The facility includes two full-length, state-of-the-art artificial playing surfaces with lighting, one of which is a 4000-seat stadium; the Ed Meagher Arena; a gymnasium; and a modest weight room.

Our new fitness centre – located on the Sir George Williams campus in the Engineering and Visuals Arts Pavilion – is a comprehensive workout facility and is the focal point of instructional programs.

It is located on Granville Island in the centre of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

In 1994, the Institute opened a spacious 60,000 square foot addition that houses integrated media, painting and design, as well as the library.

Recently Emily Carr has constructed a five-million dollar, state of the art Intersections Digital Studio (IDS). IDS provides a substantial expansion to ECU’s research and experimental capabilities. A modular building design with projectors, displays and sound equipment, IDS makes possible a flexible environment where students and professionals with specialized knowledge in art, design and technology can collaborate in an interdisciplinary manner. IDS is of significant value to students in the Master of Applied Arts degree and will be opening up new research opportunities for faculty and staff.
