Harrison College Names New Lafayette Campus President

Lafayette (February 8, 2016) — Harrison College, a nationally accredited, career-focused higher education institution serving more than 3,000 students, recently named Cindy Clampitt as campus president of its Lafayette campus.

Clampitt has worked at Harrison since 2012, most recently as senior director of career services, providing strategic vision and leadership to the career services staff at all campuses and leading the collection and reporting of graduate employment outcomes.

As campus president in Lafayette, Clampitt will oversee all local campus operations and be responsible for growth and profitability and community engagement. In addition, Clampitt is leading the campus’ relocation back to downtown Lafayette.

“Cindy’s leadership and institutional knowledge is a great asset to this already thriving campus in Lafayette,” said Dr. Jim Hutton, president and CEO of Harrison College. “Harrison’s mission is to collaborate with students, staff, faculty, alumni and our community to deliver student-centered education and prepare students for careers that positively impact society, both locally and globally. Cindy will bring this mission to life through her natural ability to quickly make deep-impacting ties within the communities she serves.”

“I am honored to have been selected to serve as campus president in Lafayette and look forward to interacting more closely with students to help them on their educational journey,” said Clampitt. “Harrison’s educational values mirror mine: excellence, service and compliance, and I look forward to continuing Harrison’s more than 100-year legacy of serving the Lafayette community.”

Clampitt is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers, Midwest Association of Colleges and Employers and Career Development Professionals of Indiana. She has been a volunteer with Bloomington’s Monroe County Community School Corporation MCCSC Leads initiative, a council member with College Mentors for Kids in Bloomington, a mentor with Harrison’s Lumina Foundation 2025 Initiative and at Indianapolis Metropolitan High School and a presenter at Dress for Success in Indianapolis.

Clampitt earned a master’s of leadership development from St. Mary of the Woods College in Terre Haute, graduating with honors. She also holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.

Harrison is moving from its current location on Meijer Court on the city’s east side to downtown to the historic Loeb Building at 323 Columbia Street. When Harrison opened in Lafayette in 1905 as Lafayette Business College, it was located just a few buildings down from this new location. 

At Harrison’s Lafayette campus, students can pursue associate and bachelor’s degrees in more than 30 programs either online or on-ground or a mix of both. With flexible schedules, the new campus will serve as a resource during most hours of the day, not only for students, but community groups, as well.

Harrison is scheduled to begin classes at the new location in the fall of 2016.
