It All Began in 1942
In 1942, a group of visionary citizens opened the doors of Carleton College in Ottawa to students building their careers after the Depression and military service in the Second World War. Carleton University is now a leading post-secondary institution, one that has provided a unique educational experience to more than 145,000 graduates over seven decades.
Along the way, many great people have become an integral part of the Carleton story. And, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2017, we want to honour them.
Read more about the CU75 campaign, and help us applaud our incredible people by visiting their biographical pages and sharing their stories on social media using the hashtag #CU75.
Watch for some new participants in the months to come as we embrace a milestone anniversary packed with special events. Join us!
