About Campbell University
Fueled by a higher calling, we provide a transformational learning experience that prepares students for servant leadership and equips them with skills and habits to make a difference in the lives of others.
Leading from the start
Then a 25-year-old Baptist minister, J.A. Campbell founded Campbell University in 1887 when there were no other schools in the area. We continue his vision today to serve our community and to prepare students to lead with purpose.Our history
"Here at Campbell we foster that environment where . . . you have to give it your best shot and take a risk to get out there and make the change or be the change that you want to be."
