Dates of existence



The Office of Alumni Affairs provided the principal link between Concordia and its network of graduates, to strengthen this bond and to engender in its alumni and students, as future alumni, loyalty and support for the University. The office had its origins in the hiring of Gary Richards on July 1, 1983, as Executive Director of the recently formed Concordia University Alumni Association, reporting to the Rector and to the Association’s Board of Directors. He soon became known as Director of Alumni Affairs. In 1985, the publishing of Concordia University Magazine changed responsibility from Public Relations Department to Alumni Affairs. Gary Richards left the University in April 1989, then Carolishca Locas became Acting Director until the arrival of Ann Vroom on September 18, who stayed Director of Alumni Affairs for the following 10 years, until October 1, 1999. In accordance to the final report of the Advancement and Alumni Task Force (October 12, 1999), the offices of Alumni Affairs and University Advancement were organizationally and geographically consolidated in 2000. Both units moved to the fifth floor of the Faubourg Building and became one unit: Advancement and Alumni Relations (AAR).
