Dear Members of the Campus Community,
I am writing to share with you the tragic news that longtime University of New Haven management professor Tony Carter died on Saturday night. I worked with Tony on a number of community-focused initiatives. He was an incredibly caring individual who was happiest when he was helping others. He had a transformational impact on his students and on the greater New Haven community.
Professor Carter had a passion for mentorship and was profiled in 2015 by his hometown paper as a devoted volunteer who is passionate about giving back to the community. For nearly 10 years, he organized a program that paired local youth with University of New Haven students to provide encouragement and advice.
Tony joined the University of New Haven in 2005. He previously taught at Columbia University, Wagner College, and William Paterson University. His research interests focused on globalization and its cultural, demographic, political, environmental, and technological impact, and he lectured and studied in China, Lithuania, and the country of Georgia. He authored nearly 20 book chapters and journal articles and presented his work at national and international conferences.
He earned his Ph.D. in management at Western University and his J.D. at the University of Denver. He previously served as national division manager/vice president for the Lawyers Insurance Corporation and as assistant vice president of Commonwealth Land, Inc. He also served as a consultant for the United Nations and Sony, among other businesses and organizations.
Please join me in expressing our heartfelt condolences during this difficult time to Professor Carter’s three sons, his family, friends, colleagues, and many students.
