Campbell to launch nursing program in 2014 The Campbell University Board of Trustees voted to establish a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree and launch a nursing program in August 2014. It will be the fifth major health sciences program launched or announced by Campbell in the last three years. The Physician Assistant program welcomed its first class in 2011, the Master of Public Health program was launched in the fall of 2012, the School of Osteopathic Medicine will open and house its first class of 150 students this fall, and the anticipated Doctor of Physical Therapy program is projected to begin in January 2014. As with its predecessors, the nursing program will help fill a growing need in North Carolina. The current statewide and nationwide shortage of nurses — coupled with recommendations from the National Institute of Medicine that more nurses be trained at the baccalaureate level — means the overall projected need for degreed nurses will increase by 28 percent over the next decade.

Presence of Christ Resident chaplains help first-year students adjust to life in college By Cherry Crayton BUIES CREEK — Like many other college freshmen, Sarah Winter’s first year at Campbell University has been one of transition. There have been adjustments related to being away from home, living with a roommate, making new friends and managing a college course load. And, “We’re all trying to find ourselves and find some direction in life,” said Winter, a freshman from Apex, N.C., who is a biology and pre-physician assistant major. This time of transition can be exciting and hopeful; but with it can also come anxiety, homesickness and loneliness. What helped make the transition to college enriching for Winter, she said, was Campbell’s resident

chaplaincy program, which was begun in the fall of 2011. Assigned to the six residence halls for firstyear students on campus are five graduate students from the Divinity School and one from the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business who serve as resident chaplains, providing pastoral care and leadership to each residential community. Nearly all of the chaplains — four females and two males — also live in the halls alongside the freshmen they’re serving. “Having a chaplain who lives in our dorm who is always there for us and prays for you is very comforting,” said Winter. “I know it has really enriched my first-year experience.” FULL STORY

CAMPBELL LAW SCHOOL

J. Rich Leonard named next dean of Campbell Law RALEIGH — J. Rich Leonard, United States Bankruptcy Court Judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina, has been appointed as the next dean of Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law. Leonard’s appointment, effective July 15, 2013, fills the position currently held by Interim Dean Keith Faulkner. “Judge Leonard’s wealth of experience in judicial leadership will prove tremendously beneficial to our students and faculty,” said Campbell President Jerry Wallace. “His commitment to academic excellence and the highest standards of legal education will help shape the future of Campbell Law School for years to come and we are excited to welcome him to this new role.” A native of Davidson County, Leonard is a 1971 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead Scholar. He earned a master’s degree in education from UNCChapel Hill in 1973, and then earned a law degree from Yale Law School in 1976. He has served as a United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina since 1992 and as Chief Judge from 1999 through 2006. Prior to that time, he was a United States Magistrate Judge (1981-1992) and Clerk of Court of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina (1979-1992). For more than a decade, Leonard also acted as a consultant to the U.S. Department of State to work with judiciaries in many developing countries. Leonard’s professional associations in-

clude appointments to the Board of Governors for the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (2008-2011); Fellow at the American College of Bankruptcy (2005–present); and leadership roles with the Wake County Bar Association and North Carolina Bar Association, among other legal organizations. His judicial work and expertise have earned him both state and national recognition. In 2011, the American Bar Association awarded Leonard with the Robert B. Yegge Award for Outstanding Contribution to Judicial Administration. He is the 1992 recipient of the Director’s Award for Outstanding Leadership in the Federal Judiciary. In 2011, he was selected as the Editor in Chief of the American Bankruptcy Law Journal. Leonard has also been active in the classroom. He has worked as an adjunct professor for North Carolina Central University School of Law (1985-1986; 1995-1998); UNC School of Law (1994-1995); and, most recently, Camp-

bell’s law school (2009-present). In 2012, Campbell Law’s Delta Theta Phi Fraternity presented Leonard with the Judge Robinson O. Everett Award for Legal Excellence. “Although I take enormous pride in my tenure with the federal courts, I am both humbled and elated to be offered this unique opportunity,” said Leonard of the appointment. “I believe in this law school. I appreciate the focus on rigor and discipline, and the emphasis on the practical aspects of law practice.” “We could not be more pleased to welcome Judge Rich Leonard as the next dean of Campbell Law School,” said Benjamin N. Thompson, Chair of the Campbell University Board of Trustees. “He brings a wealth of administrative experience, scholarly work and broad respect from his years of service on the federal bench. He will help take our program to the next level regionally and nationally.”

Sadie Neel Class of 1942

Faculty author comprehensive book on drug development

By Cherry Crayton BUIES CREEK — When searching for teaching resources, Campbell University faculty members Antoine AlAchi, Mali Gupta and William Stagner saw a reoccurring need for a book that provided a comprehensive approach to the pharmaceutical industry. The three started discussing this issue, and before long, a new book project was underway. “We wanted to provide a single resource for pharmaceutical students and scientists that covered pre-formulation, product design and offered a depth of information about the regulatory aspect,” said Dr. Mali Gupta, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences. After three years of dedicated writing and collaboration, “Integrated Pharmaceutics: Applied Preformulation, Product Design, and Regulatory Science” hit bookshelves this spring and is available to purchase online. The new book is unique because it is one of the first to offer a complete picture of the drug development process with current topics, problem-solving examples and reference material.

“There have been very few books that cover the topics that we include. For my classes, I was recommending four or five books to offer enough material for everything that I wanted to cover,” said Dr. William Stagner, professor of pharmaceutical sciences. To write a book that encompasses the complex process of drug product design to FDA approval requires an extensive wealth of knowledge. The combined expertise of all three co-authors allowed them to meet this challenge. Before arriving at Campbell, Gupta spent 25 years in various positions at Revlon, including director of quality control and assurance, and Stagner established the Pharmaceutics Department at the Glaxo Research Institute. Dr. Antoine Al-Achi, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, has taught pharmaceutics to Campbell’s Doctor of Pharmacy students for over 20 years, and is the former director of the Formulation Development Division of Campbell’s Pharmaceutical Sciences Institute.

Men’s basketball

Ex-Richmond assistant to lead Campbell’s men From Campbell Athletics BUIES CREEK — For the last eight years, Kevin McGeehan has been the right-hand man for Richmond University head coach Chris Mooney, helping guide the Spiders to two NCAA tournaments and one appearance in the Sweet 16. Mooney was in the audience Thursday to support McGeehan — his friend and colleague — as he takes the next big step in his coaching career, head men’s basketball coach at Campbell University. “I am excited and honored to take this program to the next level,” McGeehan said before a packed crowd of supporters Campbell administration and faculty and players in the lobby of the John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center Thursday. “This is a beautiful campus and a beautiful arena ... it’s going to be an exciting place to watch basketball. And we’re going to do some incredible things here.” Prior to the 2008-09 campaign at Richmond, McGeehan was promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach. Among the highlights for the Richmond program during McGeehan’s time on staff was consecutive NCAA tournament berths, including a trip to the 2011 NCAA Sweet 16. The Spiders were ranked in the national top-25 polls in 2010 and set a school record with 29 victories one year later when they won the Atlantic-10 Conference championship. McGeehan assumes control over a program that has called the 3,095-seat Gore Arena inside the Pope Convoca-

tion Center home since November 2008. Over the last five years, the Camels have amassed a 48-24 (.667) record at home. “As you move through your career, you look for opportunities that fit. I felt like I was ready to move on, and Campbell University was the perfect fit for me,” McGeehan said. “I couldn’t think of another school that was a more perfect fit.” He said he did his research on the program and the school prior to interviewing for the position, and he instantly viewed Campbell as a school and program on the rise. After his first meeting with Athletic Director Bob Roller, McGeehan said he was hooked. “[My wife] Melissa and I have been overwhelmed with the kindness of every person we have met and are excited to add our family to this Campbell family,” he said. “I feel like we have a formula for success right here.” Roller said he received more than a few dozen serious applications for the job after the school cut ties with former head coach Robbie Laing after the 2012-13 season. He said when it came to McGee-

han, there was always one constant comment from those who knew him — he is a true basketball coach and teacher. “Kevin has been a part of building programs at all levels since the mid-1990s, and he is extremely well positioned to take Campbell Basketball where our alumni, student body, and supporters want to go,” Roller said. McGeehan will take over a team that returns nine of its top 10 scorers and rebounders from 2012-13, when the Camels finished 13-20 overall and third in the Big South Conference North Division (7-9). Among the returning players are all-conference point guard Trey Freeman and rising senior power forward Marvelle Harris. McGEEHAN’S CAREER Teamed with Mooney since the mid90s, McGeehan has played a vital role in the resurgence of the basketball fortunes at the Air Force Academy and Richmond. FULL STORY

the academy.” New Horizons Academy is a non-profit private school primarily focused on impoverished children. employee giving drive in full swing for 2013 In addition to building pride among the faculty and staff here, having a high percentage of employees who give back helps the University in its request for grants. And businesses, corporations and foundations are more likely to support a school whose employees have a high rate of support as well. These are some of the important points being driven home by annual fund director Peggy Mason (BBA ’92, MBA ’97), who has launched the 2013 Annual Employee Giving Campaign. A record 89 percent of Campbell employees gave back in 2012, up from 83 percent the previous year and 61 percent back in 2008. Mason said the goal this year is 100 percent ... not an unreachable mark considering the percentage growth over the years. “This University’s faculty and staff have a huge impact, and sometimes they don’t realize their importance,” Mason said. “The people here are what make Campbell truly special. And it’s taken everyone working together over the years to make Campbell great.” While the primary focus of the Annual Employee Giving Campaign is the Annual Fund, employees can choose another area of Campbell they want to support. As long as there is a gift account for that area of interest — such as one of the University’s seven schools or athletics — money can be designated for that specific Campbell school or program.

ItAllCounts funding program benefits Alumni Endowment and Annual Fund. A new fundraising tool provides money to Campbell University and rewards Campbell alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends for shopping online. Through the program, called ItAllCounts, users can sign up for free and shop at a range of nearly 700 online stores including stores like Kohl’s, Home Depot, Best Buy and Walmart. A percentage of the sale is then donated to Campbell University, and another percentage is credited to the user. “For example, if a store’s contribution is 4 percent and you make a $100 purchase, you get $2 and $2 goes to the University,” said Doug Jones, AVP for Alumni Relations. The purchaser has the opportunity to support the Alumni Endowment which will provide resources for funding alumni events or the Campbell Annual Fund. When you shop online through the ItAllCounts portal, you can build up a refund for yourself and help the University at the same time. “It’s a great way for people to get involved,” Jones said. “Some people want to help the University but don’t like writing out a check, so this way they can help Campbell as well as save a couple of bucks on the products they normally buy.” Campbell alumni, employees, students and friends of the University may join the program at any time and participate whenever they would like.
