Concordia's "millennial renaissance" draws more students, research funding

April 14, 2011

A "millennial renaissance" at Concordia University has seen the institution double its enrolment of out-of-province students, boost its research funding, and revitalize the physical imprint of its campuses since 2000. The institution has attracted 99% more Ontario students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the past decade. Over the same period, the share of foreign students has risen by 150%. From 2001 to 2005, research revenue at Concordia increased by 100%. Over the last 4 years, the university's research funding has averaged $30 million per year. The last decade has seen the revitalization of Quartier Concordia, which stretches across 4 square kilometres in downtown Montreal, as well as the overhaul of the Loyola campus in the city's west end.
