Richard Carter, program administrator for the Teacher Preparation Program , will serve as the guest preacher at 11 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, during the Martin Luther King Jr. Service of Recommitment in the Princeton University Chapel on campus.
"Love Knows No Boundaries" is his topic. The service also will feature a rendition of "Go Down, Moses" arranged by Michael Tippett under the direction of Penna Rose and sung by the Chapel Choir .
"The [service] represents a special opportunity to reflect upon this critical period in our nation's history, relative to contemporary circumstances, from a spiritual perspective," Carter said. "King's efforts to create a world in which it is easier to love are relevant to our lives today because many citizens in our society continue to struggle for validation and security."
Carter holds three degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, including his bachelor's in 1988, an M.S. Ed. in 1989 and an Ed.D. in 1998. He began his professional career in 1989 as a teacher at Turner Middle School in Philadelphia, where he was recognized for outstanding teaching. In 1995, he became assistant professor of teacher education at Rider University, where he taught secondary education courses and supervised student teachers. Carter joined Princeton University in 2001.
