John P. Campbell
Dr. John P. Campbell is Associate Provost for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer. He came to WVU in January 2013, assuming leadership of the growing technology infrastructure.
John is focused on strategic planning, information security, constant improvement of technological resources and excellent service to all University customers. He’s also committed to improving coordination among independent IT units and communication with the larger campus community.
Before coming to Morgantown, John was the Associate Vice President for Academic Technologies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind. His work there focused on supporting, empowering and enhancing faculty efforts in research and teaching/learning. Among other things, he examined the use of academic analytics to identify students at risk of failing their courses.
John founded the Signals project, which gives instructors real-time feedback and lets them intervene with struggling students as early as the second week of class. Signals was featured on NBC Nightly News and in the Chronicle of Higher Education. It also won the 2012 Noel-Levitz Retention Award, the 2011 Digital Educational Achievement Award and the 2011 Campus Technology Innovators Award for Teaching and Learning.
In 2013, John oversaw the creation of what Network World magazine recently labeled “a wireless bonanza” at WVU, the transformation of unused television frequencies or “white spaces” into broadband service at the Personal Rapid Transit stations. The next step is to expand that network to the PRT cars themselves.
A native of Mason, Ohio, John earned his doctorate in Higher Education Administration and his master’s degree in educational computing and instructional development from Purdue.
When he’s not at work, you can often find John making toys and furniture in his home woodworking shop, cooking up something in his kitchen or exploring parts of West Virginia–usually on one of its countless hiking trails.
John and his wife, Lois, have two children, daughter Sarah and son Matthew.
