Campbell is also past chair of the Department of Art and Public Policy at the Tisch School since 2000. Under her stewardship as Dean, the Tisch School tripled the number of applications it receives, cut its acceptance rate in half, and increased the percentage of minority students studying there from 10% to 40%. She initiated major renovations of the School’s film facilities; inaugurated new programs in Art and Public Policy, Film Preservation and Archiving, and Recorded Music; and lead the School in a $75 million capital campaign. As Associate Provost for the Arts, her responsibility was to provide guidance and leadership in the arts which transcend individual schools at NYU.
