As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday and Carleton University turns 75, join us in the nation’s capital to experience the excitement and get inspired with your peers at CAUBO 2017.

Every day we work with a number of stakeholders to allow universities to better operate and deliver Canadians quality higher education and high-end research. This collaboration allows us to gain access to their knowledge and skillsets to offer interuniversity partnerships that we should not pass up.  Explore how we can all tap into our “capital” – our people, our knowledge, and our resources.

Our keynote speaker Steve Paikin, respected journalist and host of TVO’s The Agenda, will examine the topic of Higher Education at a Crossroads. On Tuesday morning, plenary speaker David Coletto, Marketing Research Leader & Expert on Canadian Public Affairs, will dive into The Canadian Millennials and How this Generation is Changing Everything.

Main conference events as well at the pre-conference seminars will take place at the Westin Ottawa located at

Carleton University

In 1942, a group of visionary citizens opened the doors to the Carleton College in Ottawa to students looking to build their careers after the Great Depression and military service in the Second World War. Carleton University is now a leading post-secondary institution, one that has provided a unique educational experience to more than 130,000 graduates since its inception.

Bordered by the Rideau River and the historic Rideau Canal, Carleton is located just south of Ottawa’s city centre and Parliament Hill. The university provides great advantages of its location in the capital – from industry and government partnerships to unique learning opportunities and co-op placements for students. The campus has five kilometres of underground tunnels that conveniently links all buildings, making Carleton the gold standard for accessibility.

The university offers more than 65 programs in areas as diverse as its students from public affairs and journalism, to industrial design, engineering, technology, and international studies. Three thousand professors and staff constitute a dedicated team serving more than 28,000 students annually. Carleton’s interdisciplinary and international research approach regularly leads to significant discoveries and creative works.
In 2017, Carleton will mark its 75th anniversary just as Canada turns 150, making Ottawa the ideal destination. Celebrate our capital advantage!
