The 2022 university rankings published in Maclean’s magazine on Oct. 7, 2021 underscore Carleton University’s leadership in the post-secondary sector, particularly in the areas of research, student awards, and Indigenous initiatives.
Carleton maintained its top 5 overall ranking in the comprehensive category — universities with a significant amount of research activity and a wide range of programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including professional degrees.
I am proud that Carleton’s outstanding achievements and reputation are being recognized in these national rankings,” said Carleton President Benoit-Antoine Bacon.
“This highlights to the notable momentum that is taking place in all areas of our university community and is a testament to the amazing work of our faculty, staff and students, particularly over the very challenging last 18 months.”
Carleton’s leadership in research was recognized with a jump to No. 2 in funding in the social sciences and humanities, and it maintained its No. 5 position in science and medical funding.
In the area of student satisfaction, Carleton’s wealth of teaching talent was recognized as it secured the No. 4 spot for Course Instructors, and rose up to the No. 5 spot for Promoting Indigenous Visibility.
