Dr. Campbell was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and attended the city public schools.

He overcame these circumstances and is passionate about helping all youth to achieve their dreams no matter what their race or socioeconomic background. Dr. Campbell has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University, a Master of Engineering in Manufacturing from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and a Doctor of Education Leadership from Harvard University.
