A Ball State University professor has earned national recognition for his career achievements with an award from the National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI).

Howard Campbell, who teaches courses related to apartment management and housing issues in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, received the Apartment Career and Education award at the NAAEI's June 27 national conference in Orlando.

"It is indeed a high honor to be recognized for this award by peers and colleagues in the apartment industry where I spent more than 30 years before joining the Ball State faculty in 2004," Campbell said.

NAAEI is the education arm of the National Apartment Association, a federation of almost 200 affiliates comprised of 51,000 multifamily housing companies in the U.S. and Canada.

Campbell helped found the residential property management advisory board at Ball State, served as state president for the Indiana Apartment Association and was NAA regional vice president of the national association.
