President Richard Carter announced that he will be retiring from City University of Seattle effective June 30, 2016.
During Carter’s tenure, CityU experienced growth in worldwide enrollment, attained doctoral-level accreditation, achieved programmatic accreditations with ABET and CACREP, and secured a top-30 ranking on US News and World Report’s best online-bachelor’s list.
“It has been my great honor,” said President Carter, “to lead a dynamic University so committed to serving those with the desire to learn. I have had the pleasure of working with a dedicated faculty and staff, and of serving many thousands of students in North America, Asia, and Europe. I thank our board of trustees and CityU’s inspiring students for entrusting me with this great responsibility.”
The University’s Board of Trustees has initiated a search for City University of Seattle’s next president. Details on the search can be found at https://www.cityu.edu/discover-cityu/presidentialsearch.
