Concordia University College of Alberta

Alberta - Canada


Concordia is an intimate university community within the busy urban center of Edmonton, Alberta's capital. Our Highlands campus is tucked away in a residential area overlooking the beautiful North Saskatchewan River valley, minutes from downtown by public or private transportation. It's the best of both worlds: a peaceful locale within easy reach of the countless amenities of city center.


Concordia University College of Alberta is a community of learning grounded in scholarship, freedom, and the Christian faith, preparing students to be independent thinkers, ethical leaders, reflective servants in their occupations, and citizens for the common good. 


Concordia University College of Alberta will be recognized nationally and internationally for its graduates' knowledge, skill, integrity, and wisdom.


Concordia is seeking an institutional reputation and profile both locally and nationally as an excellent smaller Christian university true to its mission and vision, and a good choice for all students seeking to enrol in its programs

Concordia maintains its mission as a Christian university serving the public.

Concordia seeks to respond to the expanding expectations of a diverse population of students, faculty, and staff with various world views and experiences, varied generational attitudes, various accommodation requirements, and with a growing sense of the necessity of equal treatment in Canada’s pluralistic society.

Concordia seeks out faculty who support Concordia's mission.

Concordia seeks to recruit, retain, and train administrators and staff who contribute to its mission, and also to put in place appropriate human resource planning to support the ongoing mission in spite of the constant challenges of competition for scarce human resources.

Concordia seeks collaborative opportunities with community partners and other educational institutions which make sense and allow it to enhance its mission, without placing undue hardships on our institution brought about by such arrangements

Throughout its history, Concordia has remained grounded in the belief that the Christian faith gives purpose to life and that success depends upon spiritual maturity. Concordia fosters a Christian lifestyle on campus and encourages a dual commitment to academic excellence and religious vitality.
