The Community’s Role at Concordia

As we strive to provide programs and services to the community, we ask the community to join us in our continual efforts to provide outstanding education. Concordia welcomes partnerships with organizations, corporations and businesses that seek to support our mission to equip men and women to serve and lead with integrity, creativity, competence, and compassion.

Our partners have access to the unique resources available within our educational community, combined with visibility that reaches a national audience consisting of educators, researchers, alumni, parents, and University friends. Benefits include:

  • Events participation with various signage and recognition opportunities
  • Media coverage and mention in the Forester, Concordia’s 30,000 friends and alumni publication 
  • Access to the knowledge and guidance of our faculty, along with educational opportunities through the University’s speakers bureau
  • Impacting students directly with internship programs
