Curtis Campbell, a veteran administrator with nearly 20 years of experience in intercollegiate athletics at both NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III schools, has been hired as the next director of athletics at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He will begin his new job on July 1.

Campbell has served as an athletics director at four colleges and universities: Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois; Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Tuskegee University in Alabama; and most recently at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. There, he managed a $5.1 million budget and a program with 13 sports, 300 student athletes, and 55 employees.
