Campo Named to Council of Christian Colleges & Universities Board
February 5, 2013
Regent president, Dr. Carlos Campo
Regent president, Dr. Carlos Campo, has been appointed to serve a three-year term on the board of directors of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). Campo's term began on February 1.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the CCCU is an international association of intentionally Christian colleges and universities. Founded in 1976 with 38 members, the Council has grown to 118 members in North America and 54 affiliate institutions in 20 countries.
"It is an honor to join the CCCU board," Campo said, "and to work with other Christian leaders who are passionate about advancing the cause of Christ-centered higher education. The historic 'river' of the Christian intellectual tradition is one of the sustaining elements of this nation, and we will work to see it become a torrent of beauty and truth in the coming years."
Since becoming the eighth president of Regent University in 2010, Campo has committed to bring Regent to an even higher level of Christ-first excellence in academics, spiritual vitality, global impact and servant-leadership to change the world. He is also focused on championing Regent as a premier regional asset to the Hampton Roads region of Virginia and a collaborative partner in the community. Campo joined Regent as vice president of academic affairs in 2008, following a 20-year career in academia.
Regent's ties to the CCCU date to 1995, when the university became an affiliate member. In early 2012, the CCCU granted full membership status to the university.
