Brig. Gen. Carter assumes leadership of Krause Center
Former Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College Harrison S. Carter has been named the executive director of the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics.
Carter, a faculty member in the School of Business Administration, has been involved with the Krause Center since its inception. He authored the initial proposal for the Krause Initiative—the precursor to the Krause Center. As the first director of Academic Leadership Programs, he led the development of the Sophomore Leadership Seminar and the Graduate Certificate Program in leadership.
“As the nucleus of leadership development on campus, the Krause Center plays a pivotal role in The Citadel experience,” said Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa. “Harry Carter, a proven leader on our campus, will do an excellent job as executive director.”
Carter, who joined The Citadel in 1999 as vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college, oversaw a reorganization of the academic departments into five schools and initiated the development of an integrated freshman experience program known as Citadel 101. Carter came to The Citadel from Georgia Southern University where he served for 24 years as a professor, provost and interim president for two one-year terms. He holds an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Georgia Southern University and a master’s degree in management science from United States International University. He earned his Ph.D. in Management Science from the University of Georgia. Carter succeeds Lt. Col. Jeffery M. Weart who served for seven years as the director of The Krause Center.
“I’m honored to be leading the Krause Center,” Carter said. “The focus on leadership and ethics is what distinguishes a Citadel education from other institutions, and the Krause Center enables us to succeed in our mission of educating principled leaders.”
Founded in 2003, the Krause Initiative was established to support The Citadel vision to enhance leadership development and ethical growth at the college. The mission of the program, which is funded by a generous endowment from Bill Krause, ’63, and his wife, Gay, is to strengthen The Citadel’s preparation of principled leaders by providing institutional programs and activities.
