Campbell has raised $20 million for DeSales University.

"Fundraising is a team effort," said Campbell. "This award gives DeSales recognition as coming of age and being on the same level as other colleges and universities in the Lehigh Valley and across the country."
In 1994, Campbell earned the status of Certified Fundraising Professional Executive. Recently, he was accepted to the Harvard Institute for Educational Management, a summer program for senior officials from colleges and universities across the country.
Campbell joined the staff of what was then Allentown College of Saint Francis de Sales in 1988, as coordinator of the annual fund. In 1992, he was named director of development and alumni relations. In 1999, he was promoted to vice president of development.
A resident of Macungie, Pa., Campbell earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Delaware and a master's in business administration from Wilkes University.
