Foundation Board

The Board of Directors of the Concordia University Foundation is comprised of individuals with an affinity for and desire to serve the mission of Concordia University. Directors are elected by the Board to serve a three-year term of office and may serve up to three consecutive full terms, with approximately one-third of the board being elected each year. The board serves to supervise the overall business affairs of the Foundation and meets at various times throughout the year to inform, discuss, and strategize the goals and activities of the Foundation. The involvement of these individuals is invaluable to the work of the Foundation, and we thank them for their service.
