Rebecca Campbell recently retired from Seton Hill after a career with the University that spanned nearly three decades. Campbell served as director of CareerWorks and managed a comprehensive and centralized career service department that served more than 2,000 students and alumni.

“I have enjoyed working with so many students and alumni,” said Campbell. “I now hope to use my counseling skills with Baby Boomers. I want to provide career development and life coaching to that generation.”

Campbell began her career at Seton Hill as the coordinator of the Learning Center. She was then promoted to director of Career Development and the Cooperative Education/Internship Program. In this position, Campbell wrote five Department of Education grants, tripled student contact in three years and developed many new, successful programs, including Sophomore Shadowing, Senior Series, Deciding Program and Mock-Interviewing Day among others.

In 1997, in addition to her position in Career Development, Campbell served as the associate director of Education for the National Education Center for Women in Business, now E-Magnify Women’s Business Center. She developed entrepreneurial programming for “Strategy 2000,” a one-day conference for women entrepreneurs focusing on business growth; the conferences were held in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Puerto Rico. She managed the Center’s youth entrepreneurship initiatives, “Camp Entrepreneur” and “Youth Entrepreneurship Day,” and created “Business First,” a series of six regional breakfast forums to assist women in growing their business.

While at Seton Hill University, Campbell was presented with the Caritas Medal in recognition of 20 years of distinguished service to the University.

Campbell is the past president, vice president and annual conference chair of the Pennsylvania College Career Services Association, past president and secretary of the Western Pennsylvania College Career Services Association, and member of the Pennsylvania Association for Internships and Cooperative Education, Middle Atlantic Career Counseling Association, National Association of Colleges and Employers and National Career Development Association.

She is a past president of the Board of Directors of the Blackburn Center Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. Campbell also serves as a trainer with the Impact Westmoreland Leadership Program and is a volunteer with the United Way.
