Campbell receives grant for new Teaching Resource Center

By Staff Report, posted 2 weeks ago

On Tuesday, June 7, the Campbell University library hosted a naming ceremony in honor of L. Donald Starling Sr. and the late Annell Daughtry Starling, which was made possible by a gift presented by their grandchild, Lew Sterling.

The gift will fund the library’s new Teaching Resource Center to equip faculty with the skills and resources to make a difference in the lives of students at Campbell. 

The Teaching Resource Center will open in the fall according to Assistant Dean of the Library Elizabeth Dobbins. 

“We imagined a high-tech space where we could seamlessly support not only main campus faculty but also our online and extended campus instructors. Thanks to [the Starling family], we were able to select truly innovative technology that will enable hybrid and hyflex workshops, even as the physical space may be reconfigured,” Dobbins said. 

The center will be led by librarian Jennifer Seagraves and will include a circulating print and e-resource collection, faculty-led workshop series and campus conversations and collaborations. 

In attendance with Sterling was his father, two daughters, and close friends. At the event,Sterling talked about the history between his family and the university.

Lew earned a business administration degree from Campbell in 1987 and continued his education at the Wake Forest School of Law.
