Carleton Connects kicks off in the evening on Friday, October 13, 2017, and continues through the day on Saturday, October 14, with a full day of concurrent sessions, partnership exhibits and poster displays, networking and a closing plenary.  The Expo is a free and inclusive event, and will include participants and presenters who are Carleton University students, staff, faculty, alumni, and retirees; local, national, and international community partners; and the general public.

Major event highlights include:

  • Friday, October 13 – An evening reception and networking event featuring a keynote speaker and short performances and presentations on each of the four themes of accessibility, global citizenship, Indigenous communities and knowledges, and sustainability. The exciting kick-off evening of celebration also includes community partner exhibits and poster presentations of students’ community-based projects.
  • Saturday, October 14 – This is the main Expo day. Participants and presenters are invited to take part in four sessions (two concurrent morning sessions and two concurrent afternoon sessions) related to the four Expo themes.
