Brian Campbell has joined Central College as the inaugural director of sustainability education. Campbell received a B.A. degree in religion from Davidson College and a Master of Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion. He is currently completing a Ph.D. in American religious history and culture at Emory University.
Previously, Campbell served for a year as a Lilly Fellow at the Center for Religion, Spirituality and Social Justice at Grinnell College. He developed partnerships between the college, local farmers and local food pantry to improve utilization of fresh, local produce. He also planned and led an environmental justice-focused student service trip to southeast Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
More recently, Campbell served as an adjunct professor of environmental studies at Emory University, as well as a sustainability fellow for the Sustainable Partnerships for Atlanta Neighborhoods Project at the Center for Community Partnerships at Emory University.
At Central, Campbell will play the lead role in the continued implementation of sustainability education initiatives, many of which are supported by Central’s recent award from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.
