Success in the Classroom: Keiser University Expert Shares Tips for Improving Emotional Intelligence

West Palm Beach, Florida – August 2018 As educational institutions throughout the country welcome back students, Dr. Corey Campbell, Keiser University’s Flagship campus Dean of Students shares that the improvement of Emotional Intelligence (EI), can have a dramatic influence on a student’s overall academic and social success.

Emotional Intelligence is defined as the capacity of individuals to recognize one’s own, and other people’s emotions, to discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.

Campbell’s tips for students to improve emotional intelligence include:

  1. Recognize your personal triggers, or occurrences that may affect your mood in a positive or negative manner.
  2. Recognize what is within your control and what is not within your control.
  3. Establish your personal values. ‘If you do not stand for something, you will fall for anything,’ smiled Campbell who relays that it’s important to:
  4. Identify what is important to you for your general standard of behavior. When facing challenging situations use the standards (which include the emphasis you place on respect, empathy and integrity) as a path to overcome the challenge.
  5. Become situationally aware. (Understand your audience.)
  6. Recognize the difference between interacting in a social setting as opposed to a professional environment.  Understand the expectations of instructors for each of your classes.
  7. Example: What is permitted in one class may not be permitted in another, that is okay. Be situationally aware and adapt to your environment.
  8. Take control of your future. The only person’s behavior you can fully control is that of yourself.

“Because classrooms, social and athletic settings can sometimes serve as emotional incubators, an understanding of the Emotional Intelligence concept, along with one’s Intellectual Quotient (IQ) can be helpful in improving the acumen needed for effective academic, athletic and professional success, as a conscious effort to improve EI plays an essential role in overall success and productivity,” said Campbell.

Campbell has over 15 years’ experience within higher education in varying leadership roles.  A firm believer in life-long learning, he has implemented curriculum for leadership distinction, exercise science and adult education as well as worked across departmental lines to develop formative educational programs for improving student retention through First Year Experience, Student Ambassador, Peer Tutoring and Mentoring programs.

A presenter at numerous conferences on a variety of topics focusing on leadership, curriculum design, student support and fitness and wellness, Campbell has published in various peer reviewed journals. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Sciences and Master of Science in Sport Management from the University of Florida and his Doctor of Education from Nova Southeastern University. A member of NASPA, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc and the Chair Academy, he also volunteers with the American Red Cross and the Boys and Girls Club.

Mrs. Percy and Mr. Williams believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. And Mrs. Crawford from student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. She was dedicated to my overall success.

Jessica Kircher

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

Belinda Haney

The two instructors that have impacted my life are Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy. Both of them believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. I appreciate their motivation to get me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

Ty Fitzgerald

The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.

Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose.  The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.

Connie Sue Centrella

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

Dedrick Saxon

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

Natalie Dou

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

Nadege Dor

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

Marla Hadley

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

Vivian R. Howard, BA in Business Administration Graduate

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
