CJ Alumnus Heads Arkansas State Flagship Campus

Alumnus Kelly R. Damphousse started his career wanting to be a Royal Canadian Mounted Officer or a goalie in the National Hockey League. Instead, he climbed to new heights as Chancellor of the flagship institution of the Arkansas State University System.

Damphousse, who received his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in 1987 and returned to teach for two years in 1995, was appointed chancellor of the second largest university in Arkansas in Jonesboro. With a budget of $162.2 million and 1,541 employees, the campus has more than 14,000 students and 150 areas of study, including the largest online program in the state, the second medical school in Arkansas, and the first Americanized residential campus in Mexico.
