Welcome to the official page for the Strategic Plan for Community Engagement (SP4CE) process.

Open Consultation Session

Add your voice to Carleton’s first Strategic Plan for Community Engagement (SP4CE)! All faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in the first Open Consultation Session scheduled for Monday, December 7th from 10:00am – 11:00am via Zoom. This session will provide all participants the opportunity to contribute their views on community engagement to move Carleton forward in this next important chapter of our work. Registration is required. Please email communityengagement@carleton.ca with any questions.

Task Force Mandate

The Task Force will meet regularly, participate in consultations that will inform the plan, make recommendations regarding the strategic planning process, provide feedback on consultation sessions to help guide the process, provide input into the development of the strategic plan, and provide feedback on the draft strategic plan.

Please be advised that service on this Task Force comes with a significant time commitment. Note that if you are a staff member, please discuss with your supervisor to ensure they are aware of, and agree to, the time commitment that will be required.


We are in the process of planning consultation sessions across the university and with community members. In addition to attending task force meetings, members will be encouraged to attend Centre events and to participate in consultation sessions. If possible, task force members would be encouraged to attend most sessions. We will develop a schedule to ensure good representation of the Task Force across all consultations and an equitable distribution across all Task Force members. Consultations on the draft plan and additional Task Force meetings will continue during the winter term with the aim of presenting the final plan to the Board and Senate in May/June 2022.
