Mar. 18, 2012 @ 11:16 PM

HUNTINGTON — The Marshall University Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy have hired Shelvy Campbell as the director of diversity.

Campbell, who started March 1, is responsible for developing diversity and equity programs for the schools of medicine and pharmacy ensuring a quality and inclusive educational experience for all students, faculty and staff.

A veteran of higher education administration, Campbell has served in human resources and admissions positions at both West Virginia State and Marshall universities for the past 18 years.

Campbell worked for Marshall at its South Charleston campus for more than a decade as the graduate records and admissions supervisor. She most recently was the civil rights and equity compliance administrator at West Virginia State University’s Gus R. Douglass Institute, a position she had held since 2008.

“I am excited for the opportunity to return to Marshall University and to be a part of the School of Medicine/School of Pharmacy team,” Campbell said. “My goal, in collaboration with all academic and administrative units, is to provide leadership in supporting a diverse, equitable and inclusive community where diverse perspectives are respected and modeled.”

Campbell has presented on such topics as “Writing a Compliant Affirmative Action Plan” and “Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity.” She has participated in dozens of professional and community activities including the 2011 West Virginia Minority Health Advocacy Group, the City of Dunbar Recreational Commission and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from West Virginia State, a master’s degree in industrial and employee relations from Marshall, an education specialist degree from Marshall as well as a doctorate in higher education leadership from Capella University.
