Concordia to support children’s literacy, sustainability with new gift

October 21, 2016

Concordia University will have new resources to support literacy and sustainability thanks to a contribution from TD Bank Group. Half of the $600K donation will be used to support the ABRACADABRA literacy program, which was developed by researchers from Concordia’s Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance in the Faculty of Arts and Science and aims to help children acquire reading skills up to 20% more quickly. The other half of the donation will be used to support a new generation of business professionals at the John Molson School of Business through the Sustainable Internship Program, which provides work opportunities to Concordia students who lend their budding talents to small-sized, green focused companies.
