Carleton University

Carleton University is a non-denominational co-educational university in Ottawa. It was founded in 1942 as Carleton College. The first degrees, in journalism and public administration, were awarded in 1946. Property for the current site was acquired in 1952-1953. Carleton now offers undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees, and enrolls both full- and part-time students.

Past chancellors include Nobel laureate Gerhard Herzberg and former Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Lester Bowles Pearson.
