Rural Leadership

Creating pathways to opportunity & service grounded in our robust sense of mission

Since its founding in 1887, Campbell University has provided pathways to meaningful careers within an academic community that values service to others.  The University has established collaborative partnerships with area schools, businesses, churches, local governments and regional agencies because of the moral responsibility to serve those closest to us. Campbell is committed to developing local leaders who serve the communities where they live and work.

"Colleges and universities have a moral responsibility to the people and places in their regions. The presence of a college in an underserved area exerts an influence in reversing the downward trend of economic and health indicators. It promotes the common good and generates social capital in places often overlooked and left behind."
