Themed Consultation Phase

Mission Pillars

Mission Pillars refer to the core activities of the university – research, teaching and learning, the student experience, and organizational excellence. Success on these activities is critical to achieving our mission but these activities are not unique to Carleton. During the themed consultation phase, we will explore the ways in which we can build our strengths in the Mission Pillars.

Emerging Strategic Themes

The Emerging Strategic Themes are ideas we heard from the campus community about how we can leverage our strengths and distinctive campus character to create a unique vision of Carleton’s future. The Emerging Strategic Themes are intended to be applied across the Mission Pillars. They represent alternative visions of what Carleton could become. Although the themes will evolve as we develop these ideas further, the next phase of our consultation will be structured around the following preliminary Emerging Strategic Themes as possible futures for Carleton, in no particular order:

  • Leadership in Sustainability
  • Campus-Community Engagement
  • Access, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion
  • Real-World/Social Impact Beyond Disciplinary Boundaries
  • Healthy Environments
  • Innovation
  • Internationalization
  • Indigenous Initiatives

We invite and welcome your feedback on these themes. We will hold one campus-wide consultation on each topic. These consultations will differ from the sessions in the Open Consultation phase and will dive more deeply into the particular theme to help us envision how this approach could shape Carleton’s future. Consultation for the Emerging Strategic Theme of Indigenous Initiatives will be integrated with the work of the Carleton University Indigenous Strategic Initiatives Committee (CUISIC) on the recommendation of CUISIC.

There are no upcoming events scheduled at this time.
