Rebecca Campbell, PhD

I currently serve as the Associate Provost for Academic Administration at New Mexico State University. For NMSU I am particularly focused on writing policy, leadership development for department heads and faculty grievances.


I am also an Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology and President's Distinguished Teaching Fellow at Northern Arizona University where I taught courses on the theory of teaching and learning in the College of Education.  Generally, my work focuses on how pedagogy and academic policies facilitate student success in higher education.  My interests include looking at best practices in first-year seminar design, academic probation interventions, common reading programs and gateway courses.  I have over 25 years of experience in first-year student success, higher education policy, academic leadership and faculty personnel issues. And I don't want to forget that with Paul Hettich, I am the co-author of Learning Strategies for College and Career, 3rd ed.

Academic Intentions is my private business and the ideas here have been richly influenced by my higher education experiences but they are all my own.  I look forward to exploring how my background could be a resource for your personal journey in higher education.
