Carleton University is a public research university in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1942 as Carleton College, the institution operated as a private, non-denominational evening college to serve returning World War II veterans.[1] Carleton was chartered as a university by the provincial government in 1952 through The Carleton University Act, which was amended in 1957 to give the institution its current name.[1] The university is named for the now-dissolved Carleton County, which included the city of Ottawa at the time the university was founded. Carleton County, in turn, was named in honour of Guy Carleton, 1st Baron Dorchester, who was Governor General of The Canadas from 1786 to 1796. The university moved to its current campus in 1959, growing rapidly in size during the 1960s as the Ontario government increased support for post-secondary institutions and expanded access to higher education.

In July 2020, Carleton announced that classes for the Fall 2020 semester would be held entirely online, citing the potential risk
