Garikai Campbell was appointed provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Morehouse College in Atlanta. Since 1997, Dr. Campbell has served on the mathematics faculty at Swarthmore College in suburban Philadelphia. At Swarthmore, in addition to his teaching duties, Dr. Campbell has been associate dean of academic affairs, acting dean of students, and associate vice president for strategic planning.
“I immediately recognized in Dr. Campbell a combination of energy and intelligence that makes him the ideal person to lead Morehouse’s academic program and I could not be more excited to welcome him to the College,” says Morehouse College President John Wilson, Jr. “We need significant game-change potential in each and every new teammate we bring aboard. Kai will clearly be a game-change provost, who will play an important role in helping to achieve our goal of strengthening Morehouse as one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges.”
Dr. Campbell is a graduate of Swarthmore College. He holds a Ph.D. in mathematics from Rutgers University.
