Departments from across the university joined forces on September 3, 2020 to offer you an interactive online orientation experience – but it’s not over! You have the unique opportunity of attending or re-attending Orientation on demand.
You can still watch (or re-watch!) presentations and crash courses covering plenty of must-know techniques for grad school success including online learning, time management, Library skills and much more. You can still visit the virtual information booths to gather information about the various support services available to you throughout your graduate certificate, graduate diploma, master’s or PhD program. The only difference is that Concordia staff are no longer live at the event to chat with you on the spot. Instead, you will see contact information at each booth that you can use to get in touch with the department(s) you have questions for, or would like to learn more about.

The Concordia Graduate Student Orientation strives to foster a space for intellectual exploration that is at the same time open, inclusive and diverse. We urge the Orientation participants to engage with one another encouragingly and constructively, and especially encourage participants to interact with those whose viewpoints, interests, cultural backgrounds, or experiences may be unfamiliar to them or outside their comfort zone.
The organizers expect that anyone participating in the Orientation will---at minimum---treat others with respect for their dignity and autonomy. Correspondingly, behavior that violates these principles will not be tolerated, and may include sanctions up to and including expulsion from the event. Anyone who feels threatened or harassed while participating in the Orientation should not hesitate to reach out to the organizers and can expect that any concerns shared will be taken seriously and handled with both discretion and dispatch.
Anyone wishing to report an issue or concern during the Concordia Graduate Student Orientation is strongly encouraged to reach out to the organization team. They can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This address will be checked hourly between 8:30am and 3:30pm EDT on the day of the event.
Please note that participants may face penalties for the deliberate misuse or abuse of these spaces.
