Inauguration Ceremony

I challenge all of us...to be bold, to be faithfully curious. To be daring. To try new things. The faculty and staff at Concordia are exceptionally talented and very smart. There are many terrific ideas that are locked away. Let’s unleash those. Let’s step out boldly and hopefully.
