About the Campaign

Enrolling more North Carolinians than any other private school, Campbell University is the private university of choice in North Carolina. We remain true to J.A. Campbell’s vision since he founded the school in 1887. His vision, in his own words: “to educate leaders.” Today, we continue to cultivate leaders prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service. 

Through the Campbell Leads campaign, we seek support to provide opportunities for students to continue to develop quality leadership skills and experiences during their time on campus.

Campaign Progress & Need

The campaign offers three areas to support that directly impact students:

$50M University endowment to support student scholarships
$25M Projects such as academic programs, admissions center, residence halls, athletics and miscellaneous capital needs
$25M New Student Union
(Over 100,000 sq. ft. facility)

A Message from the President

Thank you for your continued support of the campaign and our efforts to provide opportunities for nearly 6,500 undergraduate, graduate and professional students to develop quality leadership skills and experiences while receiving a Campbell education.

Campbell University is special because of our people. Together, we lead students to graduate with exemplary academic and professional skills who are prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service.

– J. Bradley Creed, President

Continuing the Leads Campaign

The Campbell Leads campaign hit its 2021 goal in fall 2020, just four years after its launch. With the 2021 end date still in mind, President Creed and the Office of Advancement at Campbell University have increased the goal to $100 million.
