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 our commitment to make a difference in the world and to inspire and educate members of our community to be ambassadors for positive change. Our firm commitments to working closely with our 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. Carleton University will be 75 years old in 2017 when Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. The Strategic Integrated Plan lays out the vision, goals, and strategic actions for Carleton@75 over the next five years from 2013 to 2018. Our vision for Carleton@75: Carleton University will be known nationally and internationally as a leader in collaborative teaching and learning, research, and governance. Our students, faculty, and staff will be critically engaged, productive citizens, and highly qualified contributors to the 21st century. At Carleton, we encourage creative risk-taking enabling minds to connect, discover, and generate transformative knowledge. Through education, research, service, and innovation, and the building of sustainable communities, we can foster new ideas and future leaders to create a more sustainably prosperous future for Canada and the world. Carleton University is an independent, collegial university dedicated to learning through disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching, study and research, the creation and dissemination of knowledge, and the betterment of its community. It is centered in Ottawa and serves the people of Ontario, Canada, and the world. Carleton has benefitted significantly from a partnership with external communities and organizations. The collaboration will continue to be a Carleton hallmark as we move ahead.
