Campbell returns to provide faculty administration support

Rebecca Campbell ’88 likes to call herself an “Aggie squared,” with two bachelor’s degrees, one in chemistry, the other in secondary education, from NMSU.

As of spring 2021, she is leading NMSU’s faculty success efforts as associate provost for academic administration, providing leadership and development in support of faculty administrators such as deans, directors and department heads, as well as continuous process improvement efforts through refinement of policies and procedures based on best practices.

In addition to working closely with the deans, associate deans and department heads, she is collaborating with the leadership of many offices and units, including the Faculty Senate; Policy Office; Human Resource Services; Employee and Labor Relations; Equity, Inclusion and Diversity; Institutional Equity; and the General Counsel. 

Campbell has more than 25 years of experience in higher education. She holds a master’s degree and Ph.D. from Texas A&M University, and has focused her research on the first-year experience, student success courses and pedagogy in gateway courses.

“I am thrilled to have come home to Las Cruces and NMSU to give back to the community that facilitated my own professional growth. I am particularly excited to work at an institution that has the vision to see that fostering student success and faculty research are complementary goals,” Campbell says.
