Campbell joined the College of Education in July 2021, having earned her doctorate in educational psychology with an emphasis in special education and a certificate of applied behavior analysis from the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University.

As a participant in the DeBakey Executive Research Leadership Program through the Aggie Research Program, Campbell instructed and led an undergraduate research team. She has focused her research on preventive and intervention strategies for children with and at risk for social, emotional and behavior problems with a specific focus on African American learners and improving academic outcomes. Her research is guided by her education, practicum and work experience in clinical psychology.

Campbell received the Catapult Grant Advancing Literacy in Texas, which funded her dissertation studies that focused on culturally adapting interventions to increase their effectiveness for African American learners.

Campbell’s long-term goal is to use her teaching and research to help those who endeavor to teach and support students with or at risk for social, emotional and behavior problems and seek to improve academic outcomes of all learners. Her goal includes helping educators build cultural competence and to provide students with the social, emotional and behavioral skills necessary for success not only in the classroom but also in life.
