Patriece Campbell

Director of International Programs
Millersville University of Pennsylvania

Ever since coming to the US as a seventeen-year-old international student from Jamaica I have been committed to comprehensive internationalization. I am committed to playing a critical role in cultivating globally competent graduates from our universities, and I’ve devoted my education, work, and volunteer experiences to this cause. I’ve led strategic initiatives such as an International Student Ambassador Program and the International Engagement Program. I have been a member of NAFSA's Trainer Corp, and currently on the Leader Development Committee. I previously represented Michigan on the Region V team and have played significant roles in the Michigan Association of International Educators. I earned a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership at the University of New England. The focus of my research and dissertation was around international student integration programming and the impact of their academic and social success.
