For nearly a century, Concordia University of Edmonton has been part of a growing Edmonton city and is considered an important educational institution in the province of Alberta. The university was founded as a result of the realization of a dream held by German Lutheran immigrants who appreciated the value of an education.
With the help of Lutherans from the American based Missouri Synod, the current university was first established as a junior college in downtown Edmonton in 1921.
Since then, Concordia University of Edmonton has evolved to become one of Edmonton city’s best smaller universities and professional degree granting institutions. It is now recognized globally as a university committed to academic excellence in teaching and research, welcoming nearly 2,000 students from across Canada, as well as from over 40 different countries, on an annual basis.
