Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2005

Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of Carleton University for its innovative, educational television series, “Today’s Family”. The University will be featured as part of a series on “Choosing the Right University.”

Carleton University, located in Ottawa, Ont., Canada, is known for offering “the capital advantage” as it takes full advantage of the unique resources found in the nation’s capital including both government and high tech business. Founded in 1942, it has earned a reputation as one of the foremost universities in the country in the fields of public affairs, management, and high technology. In addition to its undergraduate and graduate programs in more than 50 disciplines, Carleton offers a variety of hands-on experiences through many co-operative education programs, work placements, field placements and internships. Carleton has forged partnerships with government organizations, private sector businesses, industry and other educational institutions. The University also has over 85 active academic exchange agreements with institutions and governments around the world and offers study abroad and exchange options.

“We know it’s extremely difficult for prospective students and their families to decide which post secondary institution they will select to attend,” says Susan Gottheil, Associate Vice-President, Enrollment Management at Carleton. “Carleton is trying to make that process just a little bit easier by reaching out and informing the American public about its quality programs which are nationally and often internationally recognized for their excellence and innovation.”

“We’re proud of Carleton’s track record. We have the oldest School of Journalism in Canada whose graduates are working all over the world. We have the fifth largest Faculty of Engineering and Design in Canada with topnotch faculty and resources in programs ranging from Industrial Design and Architecture to civil, environmental, and mechanical and aerospace Engineering. In fact, Canada’s first astronaut in space, Dr. Marc Garneau is the Chancellor of Carleton.”

Carleton University has long been known as a dynamic, research-intensive university, with a sincere commitment to its students. Its development of new and unique degree programs and outstanding student services are examples of how the university continues to anticipate and lead change. Carleton University graduates are trained to think critically, respond to the ever-changing needs of modern society, and pioneer new and innovative ideas. Carleton attracts some of the brightest students across the country and from more than 100 countries around the world, and boasts the fastest rising entry average in Ontario.

“Carleton’s caring community of more than 1,700 faculty and staff, 22,000 students, and 90,000 alumni contribute daily to the betterment of our community, our country and the world,” said Dr. Richard J. Van Loon, President and Vice-chancellor. During his tenure, the university has enhanced its research activities, improved the quality of the student experience, and launched the largest building program in its history. In August, Dr. David W. Atkinson will become the ninth president and vice-chancellor of Carleton for a six-year term. For more information, see http://www.carleton.ca/.
