Carleton University

Situated on unceded Algonquin territory beside the historic Rideau Canal, an official UNESCO World Heritage Site, Carleton University was founded by the community in 1942 to meet the needs of veterans returning from the Second World War.

Since those days, it has grown to become a leading university recognized for its leadership in teaching, research, community engagement and interdisciplinary study.

It is a community that cares about and confronts some of the most challenging problems facing the world.

Its successful capital campaign, “Here for Good,” underscores a commitment to make a difference in the world and to inspire and educate members of the community to be ambassadors for positive change.

The strong commitments to work closely with the Indigenous communities, to promote tolerance, acceptance and diversity, and to build awareness of the power and potential of education and research for good distinguish Carleton University community among Canadian institutions.
