Carleton University is a post-secondary institution located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1942, Carleton now educates over 22,000 undergraduate and 3,500 graduate students. Carleton wanted to offer a mobile application that "helps [students] manage their day-to-day university experience and offers them another way to stay connected to Carleton," says Suzanne Blanchard, Associate Vice-President (Students and Enrolment) and University Registrar, "by giving them access to their course schedule, grades, a campus map and relevant news, we feel we are doing just that."
