The event, which will be held in the Johnson Lecture Hall inside the Humanities Center, is sponsored by Lee’s Sociological Honors Society, Alpha Kappa Delta.
Carter will present “The Sociological Perspective in the Digital Age: Complement, Conflict and Uncertainty from a Sojourner’s View.”
Carter, a professor of sociology, is serving his 12th year as president of Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, Ky. Under his leadership, the university’s enrollment has grown from 1,600 students in fall 1998 to over 3,200 students today.
Additionally, the university has added seven new graduate programs and has completed the construction or major renovation of 25 buildings on Campbellsville’s campus since 2000. Carter also founded a student-driven ministry, Kentucky Heartland Outreach, which emphasizes service leadership by providing housing improvements for families in the Appalachian region.
Prior to Campbellsville, Carter spent 14 years at Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, where he served as provost and vice president for academic affairs. He has also served on the Executive Committee of the International Association of Baptist Colleges.
Carter’s lecture is free and open to the public.
Later that evening, Carter will also speak at the Alpha Kappa Delta induction ceremony for students Matt Ray, Brandon Patterson and Sharon Jacob.
