A new name and a new look

Yes, this is Concordia’s Thursday Report in a new design, and with a new name. We hope you like it.

Our purpose remains the same: to reflect the Concordia community back to itself, to present the latest in research, artistic endeavours and community involvement, and to keep Concordians in touch with one another. Thanks to Elana Trager and Marketing Communications for the new layout.

There are a few changes to note: the regular features At a Glance and Names in the News have been combined into Accolades; we have a new occasional column called Viewpoint, to which we welcome submissions on educational and other issues; and we have moved sports to the back page, where our great action photos will be in full colour. (You can still keep track of upcoming events by consulting What’s On.)

We’d like to have your opinion on these changes, and your ideas on how we can make the Concordia Journal even better. Look for a survey in a future issue.

We are also planning to publish an online style guide to help writers around the university prepare their text with accuracy, clarity and standardized use of English.
