Walter "Ted" Carter, Jr. began his term as the eighth president of the University of Nebraska on January 1, 2020.
Welcome to the University of Nebraska—the state’s only public university, home to nearly 50,000 students and 16,000 talented faculty and staff working to transform our state through education, research and outreach. I am humbled to have the opportunity to lead our university—a job that I believe is one of the best in American higher education.
I pledge to do all I can to make the University of Nebraska the best it can possibly be—an institution that stays true to its missions of access and academic excellence, that puts the success and well-being of students first, that celebrates the rich diversity that makes us great, and that works every day to demonstrate accountability to those who entrust us with their precious resources.
We owe no less to our students, their families, our incredible faculty and staff, our hard-working elected leaders, our many alumni and friends, and indeed all Nebraskans. You count on us to educate your children, to produce the workforce of the future, to conduct cutting-edge research and provide the highest-quality health care to you and your loved ones. It is our honor and responsibility to deliver.
I invite you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments and ideas. Thank you for your interest and support of the University of Nebraska.
Walter "Ted" Carter, Jr.
President, University of Nebraska
