Concordia University College of Alberta Permitted to Change its Name


By Concordia on June 30, 2014 in Concordia News

We are pleased to announce that the Honourable Dave Hancock, Premier and Minister of Innovation and Advanced Education has made a decision to permit Concordia University College of Alberta to change its name from “University College” to “University”. By allowing Concordia to be named a university, the Minister is acknowledging the nationally and internationally recognized quality of Concordia’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs, as well as Concordia’s commitment to research. The designation as a university will serve to support and enhance the already active Faculty led research culture at Concordia. But ultimately, this decision to name Concordia a university is for the sake of students and alumni, whose pursuit of future educational and career opportunities is thereby greatly enhanced.
