Reflecting on our past; looking to our future

We’ve spent the past year looking back and celebrating 125 years of faith, learning and service at Campbell University.

In Year 126, we’re looking ahead. And the future has never looked brighter in Buies Creek.

The 2012-2013 school year will be highlighted by the completion of the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine. Classes for North Carolina’s first new medical school in 35 years will begin next fall in our beautiful 96,500-square-foot facility just west of our main campus.

Four years from now, Campbell will send highly trained and much-needed doctors of osteopathic medicine into the field to fill needs in some of the state’s most physician-deprived regions.

Our medical school is just one of the countless reasons we’re Campbell Proud.

In this year’s edition of the University Report, we highlight not only the medical school, but our other vital schools and programs that have made Campbell University what it is today.

In this past year alone, we have successfully launched a Physician Assistant program and have announced other degree paths in the health sciences field. This summer, our law school graduates led the state in passage of the bar exam. For the first time, Campbell hosted the N.C. Academy of Science’s annual meeting; bringing in scientists, professors and students from around the state. And our athletes found much success in the University’s return to the Big South Conference in 2011-2012.

WE ARE PROUD of Campbell University. Proud of its rich history and its promising future. We view this year’s University Report as a reflection of that pride.

  • Celebrating our history

  • On Jan. 5, 1887, huddled inside a small church in Harnett County, 16 students and their 25-year-old teacher, James Archibald Campbell, sang out the hymn “Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me,” as they would every morning thereafter. Five other students were building the nearby schoolhouse that would become Buies Creek Academy – a place where students from all walks of life could come to learn and have the opportunity to grow in their faith. We marked the 2011-2012 academic year by celebrating 125 years of faith, learning and service at Campbell University. We are, without a doubt, proud of our rich history.


I believe that recognition of the continuing commmittment that Campbell has made to the military would be appropriate as well.  SErving those who have made the committment to serve our country truly makes me Campbell Proud.
