When the founders of Concordia began offering the institutions first classes on September 13, 1893 their vision was on the future. They could not have imagined the Concordia University of today that is celebrating 125 years during the 2018-19 academic year.
In 1893 Concordia was looking to the future and 125 years later CSP continues to look to the future. The theme “Leading in Legacy” was suggested by alumnus Sara Sather Pimental and selected because it captures the continuing dynamic that characterizes the past 125 years. This year we look over our shoulder and remember the “Legacy” of the past accomplishments and innovations but continue “Leading” toward the future with the development of creative solutions to current and future challenges.
