Tony Campolo

Two outstanding Christian leaders helped to create and shape the growth of what is now the Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies: the College’s namesake, Dr. Tony Campolo, and its first Dean, Dr. Harold Howard. It is their vision and commitment to social justice that has empowered the College to change the lives of so many people through better job opportunities and better lives for their families, all from a firm foundation of faith.
