WELCOME FROM PRESIDENT CARTWRIGHT


Alexander N. Cartwright joined the university on April 13, 2020 — becoming UCF’s sixth president. A native of the Bahamas and a first-generation college student, Cartwright’s journey to higher education was not traditional. From earning his GED, attending community college and working while attending university to help pay for classes, he understands and prioritizes the need to build successful outcomes for students from all backgrounds. Cartwright earned his bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Iowa, and he has since become an internationally recognized scholar in photonics. Today, Cartwright is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, SPIE, and the National Academy of Inventors. He was a recipient of both the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award.
