The Biggio Center and Graduate School are proud to host Henry ‘Rique’ Campa III of Michigan State University, or MSU. Campa is an associate dean in the graduate school at MSU and a professor of wildlife ecology in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. An award-winning teacher and researcher, he directs activities at MSU associated with the NSF-funded Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning Network.
