B. Keith Faulkner joined the Liberty University family on October 1, 2015, as dean of the School of Law. Prior to coming to Liberty, Faulkner gained valuable experience during his tenure at Campbell Law School. His team prepared students to lead the state in both first-time bar passage on numerous occasions and in overall bar passage during his nine years at Campbell Law. He served as the law school project manager for the construction/repurposing of a 110,000 square foot law school facility and coordinated all logistics to support the move of the law school from Buies Creek to downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. While interim dean, Campbell Law realized the institution’s highest rankings as a top tier law school in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools 2014 guidebook; competed for three national championships (earning the title at the 2013 South Texas Mock Trial Challenge); created the Campbell Connections Mentorship Program, Public Interest Fellow Program, and the “Study & Service in Panama” mission trip; established the Norman Adrian Wiggins Law Faculty & Staff Endowed Scholarship; enjoyed a 100 percent faculty and staff participation in the annual university-wide employee giving campaign; and added nine new endowed scholarships.
Faulkner holds his J.D. and M.B.A. from Campbell and his B.S. in business administration from Charleston Southern University.
Professionally, Faulkner enjoys developing effective and exceptional teams that deliver superior education and support to students. Personally, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Patty, and his three children, Hannah, Erin, and Ryan.
