Carleton third among comprehensive universities in Ontari

From Carleton University, Ottawa, CANADA

Two separate rankings published recently by the Globe and Mail and Maclean’s magazine provided top scores to Carleton University in a number of indicators.

In the Globe’s “University Report Card,” Carleton tied for first place in the category of Academic Counselling with a B+ grade. The university placed second for Campus Atmosphere with an A-. The university tied for second place among large, research-intensive universities in 10 additional categories including:

City Satisfaction (A-)

Libraries (A-)
Most Satisfied Students (B+)
Quality of Teaching and Learning (B+)
Student Residence (B+)
Class Size (B+)
Course Registration (B+)
Work Play Balance (B)
Instructors’ Teaching Style (B)
Research Opportunities (B-)

Carleton also showed improvements in its grades in three additional areas, including Co-op/Internships, Reputation with Employers and Career Preparation.

In the Maclean’s rankings, Carleton moved up from seventh place to a tie for sixth place overall in the Comprehensive University category.

Among comprehensive schools, Carleton’s financial support of its students garnered a second-place ranking. Additional areas where it scored well included national awards per full-time faculty member (fourth), and the percentage of the overall budget dedicated to maintaining library services (fourth).

“Our own research confirms that prospective students rely on a number of information sources when researching their university options and that rankings are one additional source of information for them,” said Roseann O’Reilly Runte, president and vice-chancellor. 

“With these results, it is timely to commend our faculty and staff for their leadership and for the important support they provide every day to make sure our students are continuing to receive exceptional learning experiences at Carleton University.”
