It is governed by a president, a board of governors and a senate. A. Davidson DUNTON presided over the phenomenal growth of the university between 1958 and 1972, with enrolment rising from 1000 to 7000 full-time students.
By the end of the 1960s Carleton was offering degrees in engineering, architecture, industrial design and social work. The 1970s was a decade of consolidation, with steady growth in enrolment despite financial constraints. It now offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the faculties of arts, social sciences, engineering, science, public affairs and management, and through many professional schools and institutions. Enrolment is approximately 13 000 full- and 4500 part-time students. Carleton is a publicly supported institution.
