The mission of Campbell University is to graduate students with exemplary academic and professional skills who are prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service. The University is informed and inspired by its Baptist heritage and three basic theological and biblical presuppositions: learning is appointed and conserved by God as essential to the fulfillment of human destiny; in Christ all things consist and find ultimate unity; and the Kingdom of God in this world is rooted and grounded in Christian community. The University embraces the conviction that there is no conflict between the life of faith and the life of inquiry.
Campbell colleges and schools include the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine (which opened in 2013), the Catherine W. Wood School of Nursing (2016), the School of Engineering (2016), the College of Arts & Sciences, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law (1976), the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business (1983), the School of Education (1985), the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (1985), and the Divinity School (1996).
In addition to its main campus in Buies Creek, Campbell University has off-campus instructional sites in Camp Lejeune (Jacksonville), Fort Bragg & Pope (Fayetteville), Raleigh, Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), Sampson Correctional Institution (Clinton), and a vibrant online presence through Campbell Online.
Today, Campbell University enrolls approximately 7,000 students per year, including more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students on its main campus. Over 100 degree programs in the liberal arts, health sciences, fine arts, and professions are offered.
The mission of the School of Engineering is to provide transformational learning experiences for a diverse community of future leaders through an integrated and experiential approach to engineering education, grounded in meaningful service and Christian principles.
The vision of the School of Engineering is to be the leader in faith-based experiential engineering education serving diverse students and communities.
Values: Community, Ethics, Excellence, Ownership, Professionalism, Relevance, Resilience, Service
KEEN’s vision of promoting the entrepreneurial mindset to create value that benefits the world resonates with Campbell Engineering values, especially the values of “community,” “relevance” and “service”. Creating a superior educational experience at a new School of Engineering requires that we embrace an entrepreneurial mindset open to learning and innovation. By teaching the entrepreneurial mindset in our courses for the benefit of students, we also learn and embed the entrepreneurial mindset into the fabric of how our School operates. From inception, we wanted Campbell Engineering to be a model that others can learn from. KEEN partnerships will extend our impact and ensure that we remain a learning organization that continues to innovate even after all courses have been developed and the first students graduate.
"Campbell University’s mission focuses on leading with purpose, and our School of Engineering embodies the entrepreneurial mindset – focused on curiosity, connection and creating value – with a hands-on, project-based approach throughout the curriculum. Our collaboration with KEEN is, therefore, a natural fit for us and one that helps us create the engineering leaders of tomorrow, prepared to solve 21st century problems, with the goal of making the world a better place by leading purposeful lives and meaningful service."
