An experienced administrator with extensive work history in higher education and arts management has been named the director of the new Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry.
Lisa Campbell has begun work to prepare for the opening of the Center, which is currently under construction with completion expected in April.
Campbell most recently served as director of the Center for Student Affairs at Discovery Park at the University of North Texas in Denton. In that capacity she served as a liaison between the Division of student Affairs and the Discovery Park Campus and responded to all service needs for students in the Colleges of Information and Engineering.
Previously she served as creative services manager for arts and cultural programming at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. Other previous job positions have included director of diversity and outreach for the School of Fine Arts, coordinator of audience development and special events at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and executive director of the Cook Forest Sawmill Center for the Arts in Cooksburg, Penn.
Campbell holds a master of arts degree in higher education administration from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She also holds a bachelor of arts degree in theatre from the same institution.
Crews have been working since the fall of 2013 on the the $20 million McGlothlin Center for the Arts, which is located toward the center of the historic E&H campus between Wiley Hall and Carriger Hall.
The Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts honors the memory of a 1937 Emory & Henry graduate and longtime, beloved benefactor of the College. The lead gifts for the McGlothlin Center were provided through the personal generosity of McGlothlin and the McGlothlin Foundation.
