Carleton working group rejects proposed Navitas partnership

September 23, 2011

In a new report, Carleton University's Working Group on International Recruitment recommends the institution not enter into a contract with Navitas Group, an Australian-based for-profit education firm. The report states that while the company does a good job of providing a good quality education experience within its business model, the model is not a good option for the university. The report says Carleton is already highly international with an increasing attraction for high-quality students, and that "a contractual relationship with a private company would diminish our ability to control our strategic development." Based on discussions and feedback on the report from the university community, Carleton's provost will then present his final recommendations to the institution's senate.
