The Global Academy has a mandate to connect Carleton to the world and bring the world to Carleton.  As a new initiative of the Office of the Provost and Vice President (Academic), the Global Academy fulfills elements of Carleton University’s Strategic Integrated Plan which “commits Carleton to work with others, locally and globally, to confront challenges and improve the state of our world.”  The Global Academy, in collaboration with all of Carleton’s Faculties, offers programs that serve society, increase Carleton’s profile and raise revenue by leveraging opportunities for partnership in Ottawa, across Canada, and around the world.

CampusCanada provides incoming international students with an introduction to Canada and the foundation for academic success at a Canadian university or college.  This  integrated online and on-campus course program provides an interactive curriculum focused on understanding Canadian culture and society, adapting to a new environment, and developing skills that lead to academic success;
