The Carleton Leader Community

The Carleton Leader Community will expand the many connections, relationships, and networks that are formed throughout all streams of the Carleton Leader Initiative and beyond. It provides the opportunity to discuss and deliberate the current and future challenges of the University as well as provide everyone with the opportunity for continued learning, development, and relationship building across campus. Most importantly it is a community of leaders irrespective of level and role in the University – building on the principle that we are better when we collaborate.

We held our first event in December 2014. We have engaged with all members of our Community and are always looking for new ways to connect, share, and discuss.
