CUAA Chapters

The Carleton University Alumni Association is a thriving organization of over 158,000 Carleton graduates living and working in Canada and around the world.

A worldwide network of 45 chapters and affiliates of the association extends across Canada in major cities, the U.S. and overseas. These groups, run by alumni volunteers, help organize events, programs and other great opportunities to keep Carleton graduates in touch with the school and each other. Get involved with your local chapter and start reconnecting!


In recent years, alumni have been invited to actively participate in convocation ceremonies. Representatives symbolically welcome new graduates to the alumni association just after they receive their degrees.

Carleton University Experiential Learning (CUAEL) Project

Carleton University has a new experiential learning project recently funded by the Government of Ontario’s Career Ready Fund called, the Carleton University Accessible Experiential Learning (CUAEL) Project.  The CUAEL project supports eligible students to work on or off-campus in subsidized employment opportunities.  We welcome the opportunity to work with you to determine how a CUAEL placement would benefit the growth and success of your organization.
