Carlos Campo has had a good year.

 
The eighth president of Regent University in Virginia Beach is watching as his school is quickly becoming known as having some of the best online programs on the Web.
 
In January, U.S. News & World Report named the school's online bachelor's program the 10th best in the nation. And its MBA  program tied for first in the nation.
 
Its law school recently won the national Mock Jury Trial competition, and competed internationally in London. It lost only to India, coming in at second place.
 
The way Campo describes it, the school is evolving from what once was a small, conservative Christian college into a big player in the university world. It is launching an honors program and Campo said that the school is trying to develop a global, diverse atmosphere that includes students and faculty that represent more than 85 nationalities.
 
Campo became president of Regent in 2010. His affiliations include International Association of University Presidents, the National Council on Foreign Relations, the American Literature Association, the Urban League of Hampton Roads, Smart Beginnings, the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, the National Alliance for Hispanic Christian Education, the American Center for Law and Justice, Virginia Beach Vision, the International Shakespeare Association and the Arthur Miller Society.
