A&T SCHOOL OF GRADUATE STUDIES HIRES NEW DIRECTOR OF STUDENT TRANSITION & RETENTION

The school of graduate studies at North Carolina A&T State University has named Dr. Dean Campbell the director of the Student Transition and Retention (STAR) program.

Campbell comes to N.C. A&T, after a stint as a graduate recruitment specialist at Morgan State University in Baltimore. There, he led off-campus recruitment activities geared toward transiting prospective graduate students to matriculation. He also coordinated front-office customer service and admission processes. During Campbell’s tenure at Morgan State, the university received the 2011-12 Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools (CHBGS) award for innovation in graduate recruitment and admissions.

Before Morgan State, Campbell served on a committee with Educational Testing Service and with the National Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals. He has also had several of his academic writings about graduate enrollment management with emphasis on diversity in graduate education published.

As director of STAR, Campbell will report to the assistant dean and participate in leadership and management of the school of graduate studies with a focus on developing strategic direction and managing the implementation of assigned projects to meet strategic services provided to the students.
