Carleton University has been celebrating its 75th anniversary all year with special events.
And we’ve also been steadily adding to an impressive collection of stories about our amazing students, faculty, graduates, donors and founders – the people who make Carleton a force for good in the community.
Unveiling the Final Part
of the CU75 Campaign
Now we’re unveiling a fourth and final part of the CU75 campaign as we head into the home stretch of the anniversary year.
People featured in this fourth phase of the campaign include space engineer Andrew Rader, Sam Bat co-owner Arlene Anderson, bioscience innovator Gail Garland, PhD student Gregory Brown, philanthropist and artist Jane Martin, women’s rights activist Julie Delahanty, Indigenous educator Kahente Horn-Miller and national soccer player Natasha Smith.
Shining a Light on the Accomplishments of the Carleton Community
The campaign began in 2014 to shine a light on the accomplishments of outstanding members of the Carleton community. This new group will appear on our giant billboards and street banners on campus, in advertisements and other promotional material, signs across the city, videos and social media. All of our CU75 champions been profiled on our website, CU75.ca.
Help us celebrate our incredible people by visiting their biographical pages, sharing their stories on social media and taking our CU75 history quiz.
There’s More to Come
There are more great events to come before the end of the year, including our annual Homecoming celebration on now through Sept. 17. We’re putting on a Community-Academic Expo in October. Check out that and other exciting options by going to CU75.ca/events.
Stay in touch with the campaign on social media using the hashtag #CU75.
