Orientation at Concordia begins with our PREPARE series of virtual and in-person programming, followed by our main virtual event, DISCOVER. Next, we invite you to CONNECT, START, and EXPLORE! Each component offers something completely different, and all are opportunities to learn about everything Concordia has to offer. For the full Orientation experience, we encourage you to join us every step of the way!
You can register for our DISCOVER event by clicking on the “Register Now” button at the top of the page. To learn more about our other Orientation offerings and register for more events, visit Concordia’s main Orientation website.
Our DISCOVER orientation event strives to foster a space for exploration that is open, inclusive and diverse. We urge the participants to engage with one another encouragingly and constructively, and especially encourage participants to interact with those whose viewpoints, interests, cultural backgrounds, or experiences may be unfamiliar to them or outside their comfort zone.
The organizers expect that anyone participating in the event will – at minimum – treat others with respect for their dignity and autonomy. Behavior that violates these principles will not be tolerated, and may include sanctions up to and including expulsion from the event. Anyone who feels threatened or harassed while participating in the event should not hesitate to reach out to the organizers and can expect that any concerns shared will be taken seriously and handled with both discretion and dispatch.
Anyone wishing to report an issue or concern during the event is strongly encouraged to reach out to the organization team. They can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This address will be checked hourly between 8:30am and 1:30pm EDT on the day of the event.
Please note that participants may face penalties for the deliberate misuse or abuse of these spaces.
