NHCLC Expands Role for Dr. Carlos Campo
Campo to Lead Education Initiatives, Continues as Chair of the Alliance for Hispanic EducationSACRAMENTO, April 30, 2014 – The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), regarded as the leading voice for the 16-million-strong Hispanic American Evangelical Christian community, is pleased to announce that Dr. Carlos Campo is stepping into an expanded leadership role, overseeing all education initiatives for the NHCLC. Dr. Campo, who will continue to serve as Chair of the Alliance for Hispanic Education, has partnered with the NHCLC to host an annual Hispanic Education Summit since 2010. His expanded role will allow Dr. Campo to lead the NHCLC’s education initiatives to benefit its members and the Hispanic Christian community. “Dr. Carlos Campo brings tremendous experience, integrity and leadership to his new role in guiding the NHCLC’s education initiatives,” comments Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the NHCLC. “Dr. Campo’s increased involvement will expand our impact and broaden the reach of our mission. I’m personally delighted to work alongside Dr. Campo to help Latino Evangelicals pursue educational equity and biblical justice.” Dr. Campo will provide guidance for the NHCLC’s education projects and will represent the NHCLC on education matters via media interviews and articles. The NHCLC’s 2014 education projects include focus in three areas:
- · The Hispanic Education Summit, which will be hosted this fall by Vanguard University, which invites Latino church leaders and educators to discuss the recruitment and retention of Hispanic students in Christian higher education, how to finance a Christian college education, how to develop culturally relevant curricula, as well as recruiting the right faculty and leadership. In addition, this is an excellent opportunity to meet other leaders in Christian higher education who are working toward similar goals, and sharing best practices.
- · The Raising the Standards project, which advocates for rigorous education standards alongside Former Governors Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee who have endorsed the Common Core State Standards
- · The Faith & Education Coalition will launch this summer to help draw public and media attention to a broad base of Evangelicals who are committed to improving educational equity
