Michael Campbell began his work in higher education as a graduate assistant in 1988 at Northwestern University. Since earning a PhD in 1994, he has worked almost exclusively in financial aid, but has also served as Director of Graduate Admissions, Interim Dean, and Vice President of Compliance. He has earned all 17 credentials from NASFAA-U, has served as an adjunct instructor for NASFAA-U, and was a member of several NASFAA committees working on the Certified Financial Aid Administrator program.
Most of his work has been in smaller, private, not-for-profit schools, though he has also worked in the public and for-profit sectors. In his consulting roles he has worked on several Program Reviews, and much of his work in the last decade has been “clean up” work. He has served primarily in the MASFAA region, and his focus is largely on financial aid compliance. He lives with his wife in northeast Ohio, and they have two adult daughters. He enjoys baseball, college football, reading, and playing the tuba.
