Gen. Carter's retirement to be recognized at parade

          Friday's military dress parade is in honor of Gen. Harrison S. Carter, provost and vice president for academic affairs, who will step down in June to return to full-time teaching as a professor in The Citadel School of Business Administration.

          Carter came to The Citadel in July 1999 as vice president for academic
affairs. Two years ago The Citadel Board of Visitors named Carter the college's first provost.

          A graduate of Georgia Southern University, Carter served as a faculty member, department head, provost and interim president at his alma mater before coming to The Citadel. He holds a master of science degree in management science from United States International University and a doctoral degree in management science and information systems from the University of Georgia.

          Carter also has an extensive background in the military. He was in the United States Navy from 1966 to 1969 and then served more than 25 years in active reserves with the Georgia Air National Guard, retiring with the rank of colonel in 1996.

          Under Carter's leadership, the college restructured multiple departments into five schools: arts and humanities, business, education, engineering, and mathematics, science and computer science. He has steered three schools and one department through national accreditation reviews and is heading the college's current recertification with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). He has also presided over a significant period of growth in the College of Graduate and Professional Studies.

          A search for a new provost is under way.

          Parade begins at 4:20 p.m. on Summerall Field.
