Dating back to the founding of Buies Creek Academy on January 5, 1887, Dr. J. A. Campbell set the stage for Campbell University to become one of North Carolina’s leading private universities of the liberal arts and sciences, business, law, divinity, education, pharmacy, medicine, and allied health sciences. Enrolling more North Carolinians than any other private university in the state, Campbell truly is a first choice private institution among the state’s citizenry.
Over the course of 127 years, just four individuals have served as president of Campbell University. An exciting future lies ahead for Campbell’s fifth president. The Presidential Search Committee and Board of Trustees seek a bold and engaging leader who will build upon the solid foundation that is Campbell University.
This site is dedicated to keeping the campus community and public informed on the search for Campbell’s fifth president. The new leader is expected to be named by the spring of 2015 and begin his or her duties on July 1.
