> The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a $770,000 grant to Carleton’s innovative Visualizing the Liberal Arts initiative, which will provide support for faculty development and refinement of visual approaches (such as visual images, media, and models) to teaching and learning. Grant-supported activities—which currently include a proposed exhibit on book arts and a workshop on the creation of visual materials—will begin during the 2009–10 academic year.

> Carleton was ranked 35th out of 310 schools in the 2008–09 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup, a prestigious award presented annually by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics to the best overall collegiate athletics programs in the country. Rankings are based on points awarded for each school’s finish in up to 18 sports. Carleton’s strong placing can be attributed to the successful 2008–09 seasons in women’s cross-country, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s indoor track, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field.

> Carleton tied with Davidson College (N.C.) for eighth place in U.S. News & World Report magazine’s annual ranking of the nation’s best liberal arts colleges. It’s the 14th consecutive year the College has placed in the top 10.
