Debra Heath-Thorton, Ed.D., Dean of Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies

Welcome to the Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies (CCGPS) at Eastern University!  Now that you’ve discovered us, please allow me to direct your attention to pertinent and important information about us.

Derived from our commitment to the mission statement of Eastern University, our philosophy of education is steeped in the university’s commitment to the integration of faith, reason, and justice.  

CCGPS is comprised of approximately 1,400 students taking classes from 300 full- and part-time faculty at various locations throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, Central Pennsylvania and on five continents around the world. Our nearly thirty programs range from associates degree to Ph.D. A variety of convenient delivery models are offered including adult accelerated, full semester, academic session, residency and online formats. Over 7,000 CCGPS alumni are transforming the globe by integrating faith, reason and justice with the passion and skills developed, honed and nourished while they studied here.

The Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies is named for Dr. Tony Campolo, an internationally famed prophetic voice whose lifelong association with and advocacy for Eastern University has provided a paradigm through which we attempt to accomplish our mission.  Our faith integration is lived out at the intersection of access, quality and accountability.  I invite you to explore our history, mission and programs and consider how they might help you to deepen, broaden, and lengthen your personal vocational journey.
