Engaged learning, Empower communities

Campus to Community is a community-engaged learning program that connects Carleton students with local non-profit and community organizations to explore the social, environmental, and economic challenges impacting the greater Ottawa community. By supporting the work of these organizations, students gain practical employment skills and identify real-world connections to their studies.

The Campus to Community program kick-starts on September 21st with Carleton Serves, a day of community action – mobilizing hundreds of Carleton students, to support the work of dozens of organizations across the city.

Registration for Carleton Serves is now closed but, you can still signup to participate in Campus to Community Days by viewing the calendar below.
