About Us

The mission of Community at Concordia is to build on the existing partnership between the College and its neighboring communities to enrich the lives of community members, as well as Concordia students and faculty.

The Office of Community Relations is the first port of call for all who live or work in Bronxville and the surrounding area to learn about Community at Concordia programs, or to inquire about any of the College’s services for community members of all ages. We invite you to explore this website, or contact us for more information:

The Office of Community Relations hosts Community at Concordia programs in the Business Breakfast, Books & Coffee and Jacobson Global Lecture series. We promote the Travel & Learn with Concordia program. We work closely with Concordia Conservatory of Music & Art, and the OSilas Gallery, who offer community programs in music and the visual arts.

This office’s initiatives also include the Friends of Concordia membership program, the annual Community Dinner, and other special events throughout the year. We welcome inquiries from businesses and nonprofit groups in our community who would like to partner with Concordia, or rent one of our attractive spaces for an event.

Community Relations is an integral part of the Office of Institutional Advancement, which is the fund-raising and community arm of Concordia College.
