President Campo Profiled in Virginia Business Magazine

| October 10, 2012

Regent president, Dr. Carlos Campo

Laying out a portion of his strategic vision for Regent University, President Carlos Campo is the subject of an article in the October issue of Virginia Business magazine. The magazine website's homepage also features a video of President Campo during his interview with managing editor Paula Squires at the magazine's Richmond office in July.

The comprehensive article, titled "Rethinking Regent," touches on a number of subjects, including Regent's undergraduate curriculum and the university's place as a regional asset in Virginia. President Campo also discussed larger issues in higher education, such as college affordability and accessibility, especially for African American and Latino students.

While discussing the role of higher education and the increasing pressure on colleges to operate more efficiently, President Campo said, "There is an increasing tendency to see higher ed as a business, and I think that is a two-edged sword .... There is danger there because we're not a business. Our output is not the same .... Our students are not products." On the other hand, he adds, "We have to find this balance between what I've described as the critical importance of shaping a citizenry and understanding that if higher ed doesn't adopt appropriate business practices, we will fail."

Virginia Business magazine covers economic activity in every sector and region in Virginia. The monthly publication has about 27,500 subscribers and 75,000 readers representing a diverse group of business leaders who predominately hold managerial and financial positions across the Commonwealth.
