Concordia University College of Alberta Permitted to Change its Name

Posted on: Jun 30, 2014

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.
