Cartwright is the sixth UCF president. He will start on April 13th. 

In a press release from the University, Cartwright said one of his most urgent priorities is helping UCF navigate the challenge of COVID-19, with students shifting to remote instruction and employees to remote work. 

He takes over from Thad Seymour Jr. who has been serving as interim president since the resignation of Dale Whittaker last year.
