Carleton University Day

OCTOBER 25, 2017

Let's Engage at Queen's Park

At the second Carleton University Day at Queen’s Park, on October 25, Carleton President Alastair Summerlee and other university representatives met with Ontario government officials to showcase how Carleton students, faculty, alumni and donors are contributing to Ontario's prosperity agenda. The province’s support for accessible higher education allows universities to focus on employment skills and experiential learning, which meshes with the government’s emphasis on health care, jobs and the economy, research and innovation, and energy costs and climate change. Carleton can help Ontario meet the public agenda with its capacity for talent development, economic development and job creation, and on energy, climate change and Indigenous issues.

By The Numbers

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. Carleton University’s roots as a non-denominational college supported in part by charitable donations from the Ottawa community make it unique among Ontario universities. Carleton was created in response to the need to help provide the young people in Ottawa, many of whom had taken on jobs to cope with the pressures of the Depression, with an opportunity to continue their formal education.

CARLETON DELEGATION TRAVELS TO TORONTO FOR CARLETON UNIVERSITY DAY AT QUEEN’S PARK

Carleton delegation engages with provincial officials at Carleton University Day at Queen’s Park

The Ontario government’s support for accessible higher education allows universities to focus on employability skills and experiential learning, which meshes with the province’s emphasis on jobs and the economy, health care, research and innovation, and energy costs and climate change.

That was one of the messages a delegation from Carleton University led by President Alastair Summerlee shared with provincial government officials at the second Carleton University Day at Queen’s Park on October 25.

The series of meetings and a reception at the end of the day — modelled after a successful inaugural event in 2014 — showcased how Carleton students, faculty, alumni and donors are contributing to Ontario’s prosperity agenda.
