The Big South Conference Council of Chief Executive Officers announced Campbell President J. Bradley Creed will move into the role of Vice President beginning January 2018. Previously, Creed served two years as a member of the council.
“Campbell is a proud member of the Big South Conference. I am pleased to serve the conference in this capacity along with my other presidential colleagues,” said Creed.

Founded in 1983, the Big South Conference is made up of 10 member institutions located within North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, with the University of South Carolina Upstate and Hampton University (Virginia) joining in 2018.
“With the recent addition of two new member schools and other developments, this is an exciting time to be in the Big South Conference.”
