President Ted Carter

Ted Carter portrait

Ted Carter began his term as the eighth president of the University of Nebraska on January 1, 2020. He knows how education can change a person’s life—because he has experienced it himself. As president of the University of Nebraska, it’s his goal to help future generations of young people experience that same transformative power.

Carter is a graduate of the Navy Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun) and served as an F-14 Tomcat flight instructor, rising to commander, rear admiral and vice admiral before leading the U.S. Naval War College. He most recently served as superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy, where he oversaw significant progress in diversity, graduation rates and other areas.

We are fortunate that someone who has served his country for nearly 40 years—spending decades training young men and women to be leaders—is at the helm of one of America’s great universities.
