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-five year career includes more than two decades of senior administrative experience at Catholic colleges. His leadership is inspired by Albertus Magnus’ distinctive, values-based Dominican mission and the College’s legacy of prioritizing education opportunity for those who might not otherwise have access. Prior to joining Albertus Magnus, 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 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 to new record totals, leading to the four largest incoming classes in the College’s history and an all-time high traditional undergraduate enrollment of more than 600, up 40% since 2017. Dr. Camille’s leadership has prioritized deepened commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and in 2023, Albertus achieved federal designation status as an Hispanic Serving Institution. Alumni engagement has increased, as have fundraising results, including numerous million dollar gifts and more than $650,000 raised for the Silver Horn Scholarship, launched with Dr. Camille’s inauguration, to support the degree-completion of Albertus students who face unexpected financial hardship. A comprehensive fundraising campaign is underway to coincide with the College’s 2025 Centennial.

New undergraduate programs in Cybersecurity; English, Writing and Media; Game and Computer Arts; General Health Sciences; Interdisciplinary Studies; Nursing; Project Management; Public Health; Social Media; and Supply Chain Management; as well as master’s programs in Healthcare Administration; Instructional Design and Learning Technology; and 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 six federal grants totaling more than $3.7 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 College’s Student Center. The Albertus 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 women’s and men’s ice hockey programs launched.

Prior to his election as President at Albertus, Dr. Camille served for more than a decade as Vice President for Enrollment Management and Communications at Loyola University Maryland, leading the offices of undergraduate and graduate admission, financial aid, institutional research, and university marketing and communications. Previously, he served as Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at Xavier University (OH) and worked at the University of Miami (FL) and Mount Ida College.

The author of “Ethics and Strategic Enrollment Management” in Jossey-Bass’ Handbook of Strategic Enrollment Management, Dr. Camille is a frequent and sought-after speaker at national enrollment management, leadership, marketing, and mission-focused conferences. His recent speaking engagements include the 2022 Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Presidents Institute (panel presentation, planning for changing demographics), the 2020 Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities’ (ACCU) Annual Meeting (Co-Chair for Institute for New Presidents) and 2020 CIC Presidents Institute (panel presentation, best practices for presidents working with their enrollment management leaders).

His role as a leader and influencer in the greater New Haven area has not gone unnoticed, being named to the prestigious 2023 Power 25 and 2019 Power 50 lists by New Haven Biz. Included among Dr. Camille’s service commitments are Board memberships for the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) and Connecticut Council of Independent Colleges (CCIC); serving as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III Presidents’ Council; and serving as Chair of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce’s Regional Leadership Council.

Dr. Camille earned his Bachelor’s degree in English at Rollins College, his Master’s degree at the University of Miami, and his Doctorate in Higher Education Management at the University of Pennsylvania.
