Annual Report

2015-16 Annual Academic Report

This third annual report from the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) demonstrates that during the 2015-16 academic year, Carleton University has continued to achieve many accomplishments and new milestones. We have continued to implement the Strategic Integrated Plan and our Strategic Mandate Agreement, resulting in important new program developments, continued growth in student enrolments (both undergraduate and graduate), increasing recognition and achievements of our faculty in research, scholarship, teaching, and service to the wider community, and outstanding accomplishments by our students and graduates. The success of the new Bachelor of Global and International Studies, the development of the Combined Honours in Indigenous Studies, and the construction of the new Health Sciences building  are but three examples of Carleton’s growing academic profile. While we cannot capture all of the academic accomplishments that occur across a university the size of Carleton, this review will hopefully provide you an interesting overview of the activities, achievements and initiatives during the past academic year in the various units and Faculties that report to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).

The 2015-16 academic year began with the arrival of a new Vice-President and ended with the retirement of another. It has been a great pleasure to work with Nimal Rajapakse over the past year. The academic and research sectors of the university are inextricably interlinked, and must work together closely and collaboratively for any university to succeed. Nimal has made a significant contribution already, and Carleton’s reputation and research productivity will be stronger for his leadership and contributions. In terms of leadership and contributions, what can be written about Duncan Watt that has not already been written or said many times over? All I can add is to say what an honour it has been to work with him during the last seven years of his tenure as Vice-President (Finance and Administration) and to witness the important work that he did in making Carleton a financially sustainable institution. Duncan will be greatly missed, but I look forward to welcoming another new Vice-President to Carleton when Michel Piché joins us from the National Research Council.

As in past years, I encourage you to follow up on anything in this Annual Report about which you would like more detail by looking at the various newsletters, articles and reports that are available on the web pages of the individual units themselves, many of which are linked throughout this document.

Thank you to all of you who have made 2015-16 another successful and positive academic year for Carleton University.

2014-2015 Annual Academic Report

I am very pleased to present the second annual report from the Office of the Provost and Vice‐President (Academic). The 2014‐15 academic year has been one of many accomplishments. We have continued to build upon the academic successes of Carleton University, and this is being realized in continued growth in student enrolments, increasing recognition and achievements of our faculty in research, scholarship, teaching and service to the wider community, and outstanding accomplishments by our students and graduates. Of course, we cannot capture all of the activities and accomplishments that occur across a university the size of Carleton, but hopefully this review will provide you an interesting overview of the academic activities, achievements and initiatives during the past year in the various units and Faculties that report to the Provost and Vice‐President (Academic).

2013-2014 Annual Academic Report

The past academic year has been one of many accomplishments, celebration, and varied activities that have continued to build upon the academic successes of Carleton University. Over the past few years we have reported on these activities through the annual report to Senate on the Carleton Academic Plan. Now that this plan has been incorporated into the Strategic Integrated Plan (SIP), the annual academic report has been replaced by this Academic Review, which provides some of the highlights over the 2013-14 academic year. There are always a huge number of activities and accomplishments that are happening at any one time across a university the size of Carleton, and often we are simply unaware of what is going on beyond our own section of the university. So it is not the intention of this review to capture all that is being done academically at Carleton, but rather to provide an overview of the academic achievements, challenges, and opportunities during the year in the various Offices and Faculties that report to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).

I hope you will find this review valuable in providing you with a broad sense of the academic activities and initiatives that are occurring across Carleton, and how we are moving forward on initiatives that were started under the Carleton Academic Plan and are now being implemented under the SIP. I encourage you to follow up on those areas where you would like more detail by looking at the various newsletters, articles and reports that are available on the web pages of the individual units themselves.
