Faces of Carleton

Carleton has many dedicated employees. In each issue of Carleton NOW, we introduce a person or team from the Carleton community in an effort to showcase the outstanding individuals that contribute to the University’s many accomplishments.

Things have definitely been moving quickly at the Campus Card Office this year, and that’s a good thing.

Responsible for issuing cards to all students, staff, faculty, and alumni at Carleton, the Campus Card Office maintains a database of over 90,000 patrons, and processes over 500,000 card-related transactions each month. The card itself has applications that reach far wider than simple photo identification though, including access control for athletics, a library card and debit card, among many other purposes.

Carleton already has one of the most comprehensive and integrated student and staff card programs in Canada, but Manager Kathleen Kelly and Co-ordinator David Townsend aren’t ready to slow down. Since September 2004, the number of campus locations accepting the card as a method of payment has steadily increased, and it looks like that trend will continue. The office is also investigating the possibility of adding off-campus merchants.

In other efforts to increase accessibility, two new deposit stations (Loeb and University Centre Copy Shops) were added, and electronic deposit methods are also being developed, including depositing funds on-line or via payroll deduction.

But while the Campus Card has become more sophisticated, many Carleton employees had not received a new card in decades. It’s why the office made the huge initiative of issuing new cards to all those whose card hasn’t kept up with the times. Staff and faculty who have not yet obtained one of the new full-colour cards can do so by visiting the Campus Card Office at 102F Robertson Hall, or by calling ext. 3547.
