About


At the Faculty of Public Affairs, we believe undergraduates should be a part of the thriving research culture on the Carleton campus.

That’s why we give them their own day during FPA Research Month. It’s all about the fantastic work being done by our undergraduate students as they share the discoveries they’ve made as part of their research. The students will be on hand to answer your questions.

This is a great chance for faculty, staff and students to come out and support our undergraduates!

It’s also a perfect opportunity for high school students to get a first-hand look at the type of opportunities we offer in the Faculty of Public Affairs.

The 180HRE competition will also be taking place inside the conference rooms. A reception will take place from 7:00-7:30pm celebrating both events.
