Concordia launches initiative to enhance partnerships in Africa


Concordia University recently launched the Concordia Africa Initiative to establish relationships and learn from Africa in the areas of youth employability and entrepreneurship. Through this initiative, Concordia will support young African entrepreneurs by providing business incubation and mentorship opportunities; work with African institutions to reduce the gap between graduation and employment rates; and foster academic collaboration and the exchange of scholars, artists, and students between Africa and Concordia. “Concordia has placed Africa at the heart of its international relations because of the endless opportunities for innovative collaborations, as well as the chance to learn from the people and institutions across the length and breadth of this dynamic continent,” said Concordia President Graham Carr.
