CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Campbellsville University president Michael V. Carter welcomed members to the fall Church Relations Council (CRC) meeting with an update on the busiest summer in the life of the university from mission outreach to new academic programs starting this fall and expanding sports areas to meet student interest.
