Carleton’s business school considers new location

December 4, 2013

The Sprott School of Business at Carleton University is considering options for a new location, reports CBC, and is involving students in the proposal process. Dunton Tower, the current location, is “insufficient to the school's needs, so much so that none of the 2,000 business school undergraduates take any courses in the building,” states Dean Jerry Tomberlin. Architecture and business students have teamed up to work on proposals for 2 possible new locations. The first option is to construct a new building on campus, with an attached hotel to cater to executives and conference attendees. The 2nd option is to be part of the proposed sustainable community being developed off campus on Albert Island, part of the old Domtar industrial area. The students’ proposals will be presented December 11-13. CBC
