The Office of the President of Albertus Magnus College
Biography of Marc M. Camille, Ed.D.
President, Albertus Magnus College
Dr. Marc M. Camille took office as the 14th President of Albertus Magnus College in June 2017. His thirty-three year career includes more than two decades of senior administrative experience at Catholic colleges, and his leadership is inspired by Albertus Magnus’ distinctive, values-based, student-centered Dominican mission and tradition. Prior to joining Albertus Magnus College, Dr. Camille earned a national reputation for strategic enrollment management and marketing expertise and thought-leadership.
Dr. Camille’s presidency has seen Albertus Magnus launch an ambitious growth plan, deepen and develop engagement within the greater New Haven area, and adopt a bold new strategic plan, Albertus 2025: Lighting the Way to a Second Century, setting the stage for the College’s Centennial Celebration in 2025. Since Dr. Camille’s arrival, applications for the first-year class have increased by more than 75-percent to a new record total, and the fall 2019, 2020, and 2021 incoming classes were the three largest in the College’s history — more than double the size of the incoming class in 2017. Annual giving donors and contributions have increased significantly, including more than $625,000 raised for the Silver Horn Scholarship, launched with Dr. Camille’s inauguration, to assist enrolled students who fall into financial hardship with completing their Albertus degrees. A comprehensive fundraising campaign is underway to coincide with the 2025 Centennial Celebration.
New undergraduate programs in Cyber Security, Game and Computer Arts, General Health Sciences, Supply Chain Management, and Urban Studies, and a master’s program in Public Administration have been developed under Dr. Camille’s leadership, and seven new full-time faculty positions were funded. Since Dr. Camille’s arrival, Albertus has received four Federal Grants totaling more the $2.6 million to support commitments to the success and well-being of every student. Numerous campus enhancements have occurred, including a campus-wide solar panel installation, the purchase of apartment buildings to accommodate increased enrollments, and a comprehensive $14 million renovation of the Hubert Campus Center. The College’s intercollegiate athletics program also has grown under Dr. Camille’s leadership, with numerous facilities enhancements, full-time head coaching positions funded, and new varsity field hockey, swimming and diving, and ice hockey programs launched.
