Accreditation of post-secondary institutions is the responsibility of each province and territory in Canada. Consequently, universities derive degree-granting authority from provincial and territorial legislation, and form a national coalition under the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.
Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) is a member of Universities Canada (UC) and the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS). Consistent with provincial legislation, Concordia guarantees that the principles of institutional quality assurance in Canadian higher education are maintained.
CUE is committed to the highest standards in education, service, and professional conduct and to the delivery of the best university programs for undergraduate, graduate and after-degree students. We value individual potential and offer a student-focused liberal arts education.
