Carleton University, Students and Enrolment Division

2019 Bronze Recipient
Excellence, Innovation and Wellness®

The Carleton University Students and Enrolment Division is made up of 23 units consisting of over 400+ professional staff and continues to be committed to the Excellence, Innovation and Wellness® (EIW) initiative. Although diverse, each unit contributes to the same mission of supporting students in achieving their academic, personal and professional potential through exceptional programs and services while contributing to the university’s overarching academic mission of teaching, research and community service. 

The Students and Enrolment Division has engaged the entire staff in the strategic planning process and the Division’s new strategic plan represents all departments, and their programs and services, in addition to prioritizing EIW. Upcoming initiatives include the establishment of a cross divisional communication team to better communicate information throughout the division, the incorporation of EIW in the new Students and Enrolment Strategic Plan, a review of the Healthy Workplace initiatives to ensure all staff have access to the activities, and the development of a partnership plan. The Division is excited to continue their work toward Silver Certification.
