Terrance Campbell

Director of Graduate Admissions

A man smilingAbout me
Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, I had the unique experience of attending the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences located on the last farm in the city. I went on to obtain both a B.S. in Public Service Administration in Agriculture and a Masters of Public Administration from Iowa State University. Through God’s providence, my entire career has been in the area of recruitment across multiple industries. In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my beautiful wife and two daughters.

Why I love working at Wheaton College in Graduate Admissions
I love working at Wheaton College because of the many brilliant people I get to interact with who are for Christ and his Kingdom. Each day I get to learn more while also helping people pursue their God-given callings through graduate education. It is the perfect intersection of ministry, calling and community.

Why I love working at Wheaton College in Graduate Admissions
The absolutely, positively favorite part of my job is interacting with students. Some students are exploring where their passions, gifts, and goals might intersect. Others have found that junction. All of them are considering how Wheaton can help them on their journey. If you are, were, or might be a Wheaton College graduate student, thank you for letting me walk alongside you for a time. The peace of Christ to you.

Graduate Admissions CounselorAbout me
I was born in Chicago and raised in Glenview, Illinois. Born to immigrant parents who attended one of the largest Korean immigrant churches in the north-shore suburbs of Chicago, I was culturally and ethnically immersed at home and at church. I had an interest in comparative religions that began in my early teens, and continued in college. I graduated with a BA from the University of Rochester in New York with a degree in religion and classics, and a separate concentration in chemical and biological sciences. It was the summer after sophomore year of college that God encountered me in life-altering ways. It was in the latter years of college and post-college that I grew in my faith. I am grateful to my peers, mentors, and ministers from my college fellowship in Rochester, Agape Christian Fellowship, and from my home church, Lakeview Covenant Church, for their nurturance of my faith during those years and beyond. The last few years, in completing the MA in Christian Formation and Ministry here at Wheaton College Graduate School, was a time of spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth for me. I am most grateful to my professors, classmates, and mentors in the Wheaton community whom have been there for and with me.

Why I love working at Wheaton College in Graduate Admissions
Working at Wheaton College in Graduate Admissions has allowed my past experiences and growing passions to intersect in harmonious ways. When I left my staff position in college ministry to pursue a degree in Christian Formation and Ministry, I realized a growing passion for student and leadership development. It is my joy and privilege to walk alongside prospective graduate students during critical seasons when God is calling them to take the next step of faith.
