Betsy Williams Named Dean of Academic Success

Betsy Dunn-Williams, the long-time director of academic advising, has been named the new dean of academic success at Campbell University.

“This move sends a message that Campbell University is committed to student experience,” said Dunn-Williams, who assumes her new role on June 1.

Dunn-Williams’ tenure in Buies Creek began in 2013 as the director of student-athlete development for Campbell Athletics. She has since transitioned over to main campus, serving as the director of academic support and career development along with her most recent role, director of academic advising, over the last six years.

She said this change signals the total coordination of academic advising and academic support services that can enhance the collaborative relationship for all phases of the student experience.

“Every incoming class of students is different – their needs, experiences and wants constantly change and evolve,” explains Williams. “We have the opportunity to strategically adapt our services to those demands.”

Her team will oversee academic advising and the advising center, as well as academic support services. That includes essential programming such as the tutoring center, writing center, supplemental instruction and student academic coaching.

“Institutionally, the opportunity to support the undergraduate student experience at a strategic level is going to be an immense value for our students,” Williams said.
