Books & Coffee
Our longest-running enrichment program, Books & Coffee gives the community and our students exposure to great literary minds. In immersive, engaging evening programs, best-selling authors speak about their latest works, answer questions and greet attendees in an intimate setting.
Since 2007, this innovative program has brought to campus the best and brightest minds in business, government, media, science, and the arts to discuss policy, current trends, and topical issues in their area of expertise. See a complete list of speakers here.
This annual event began in 1981 as part of the College’s centennial celebration to recognize the strong ties between the college and the local community. In 1983, the President’s Award for Excellence in Service to the Community was initiated to honor local residents who make a difference in the lives of others.
Jacobson Global Lecture Series
In 1990 Dr. David Jacobson, former Provost and Professor of Philosophy, instituted a lecture series around timely global topics, and upon his death in 2004, the college renamed it in his honor. For three decades the series has brought to our campus distinguished speakers from diverse international fields, enlightening students, faculty and the community at large.
Sluberski Film Series
Launched in 2015, this culturally illuminating program offers the opportunity to experience cinema with the artists who create it – from Hollywood to Bollywood, independent films to blockbusters.

The Concordia Conservatory, a preeminent center for music education in Westchester and Fairfield Counties, is a welcoming community where children and adults find lifelong inspiration and joy through learning, performing, listening to, and participating with others in music. Concordia Conservatory offers top quality music programs for early childhood, youth, adults and seniors.

The OSilas Gallery integrates the visual arts into the cultural and educational life of our campus and community by providing quality exhibitions and programs that are diverse in style, content, and media. Our programs are memorable, thought-provoking, and spiritually enriching; and of artistic originality, integrity, and excellence.
Three major exhibitions of diverse style, content, and media are held each gallery season from September to May. In addition, annual exhibitions of student work from Concordia College, the OSilas Art Studio, and our exceptional regional high school exhibition – StArt are showcased.
OSilas Gallery is also the home of Concerts at the OSilas, presented by Concordia Conservatory. This series features Concordia College faculty in fresh and innovative programming inspired by the Gallery’s art exhibition.
The George M. Yeager Collection of autographs of America's foremost businessmen, financiers, and wealth creators, on permanent exhibition at Concordia College, is one of the finest assemblages of its kind, and unquestionably the best on public display.
