Kathy Campbell
Receptionist and Student Records Manager

You’ll likely talk to me at the front desk if you call or stop by the M&IE office. I am responsible for maintaining student records, scholarship applications, FE exam applications, undergraduate degree applications and the ME graduate program applications. I manage classroom and conference room reservations, check-out audio visual equipment and act as general project support. Please let me know if I can help you!

I joined the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department in May of 2009 and am pleased to be a part of such a motivated and enthusiastic team. I look forward to continuing the department’s reputation which includes a friendly, helpful office.

 I grew up on guest ranches across the West, earned a business degree at the University of Wyoming, and worked for a variety of businesses from Dallas, Texas to White Sulphur Springs, Montana. After settling in Bozeman I spent 17 years planning small, guided group tours for a Bozeman-based specialty travel company. My husband, Rodney, is a fishing outfitter and long-time Bridger ski-patroller. Our grandson Kelwyn lives in the Portland area with his happy parents. I love to garden, read, ski, camp, flyfish, hunt, and hike. Rodney and I have great fun exploring backroads and small towns of Montana and beyond.

I joined what was then the Mechanical Engineering Department in 1981. Both the department and my job description have changed significantly over the past 30 years, so working here continues to be a dynamic experience. I feel privileged to work in M&IE and value the environment that exists in the department and entire College of Engineering. Our office staff is committed to high standards of performance and service. I’m proud of our team work and the good reputation we maintain with our students.

My husband, Dale, is Director of Bobcat Cross Country and Track & Field at MSU. We have two grown children. Our daughter Kim, her husband Paul, and our grandson Baron, live in California. Our son Pat and his wife Paris live in Washington state.
