Station Mission & Objectives
Concordia University Television (CUTV) is a member owned and operated subsidiary of the non-profit corporation Concordia Student Broadcasting Corporation (CSBC) and whose primary purpose is to operate a TV station and video production facilities. CUTV distributes in-house, collaborative and external independent content through its closed-circuit TV network, DVD releases, internet-based distribution networks and public access TV channels.
CUTV is a Campus/Community TV and video production studio that provides an essential service to those in the Concordia and Montreal communities whose needs are not met by mainstream commercial TV stations and video production facilities. CUTV also serves as a viable community resource by providing the space, equipment and know-how of video production to student and community populations that are interested in producing content that accurately represents them and their interests.
1- To provide facilities, equipment and training through which members of Concordia and Montreal communities may gain the knowledge of, and experience with, video and TV production, programming, distribution and management.
2- To provide a “voice for the voiceless” in addressing issues of concern in specific communities and by producing programming by and for those who are not adequately served by the mainstream media.
These objectives are realized through the adherence to CUTV's Statement of Principles and the implementation of the Programming Policies that govern the station.
