United States Marine Corps
Carol Mutter served for over 31 years in the United States Marine Corps and attained the rank of Lieutenant General (the second most senior rank in the military). Her military experience included leadership positions in logistics, data processing, financial management, human capital management, equal opportunity and research, development and acquisition. Mutter has achieved many firsts for women during her career. She was the first woman: to be qualified as Command Center Crew Commander/Space Director at US Space Command; of general/flag rank to command a major deployable tactical command; Marine Major General, and senior woman in all the services at that time; to be nominated by the President for three-star rank; and Marine three-star general.
During her presentation, Mutter focused on: learning the critical role of leadership; expanding the vision of world-wide opportunities; why students should seek opportunities to serve; and making a difference beyond the workplace.
