Mary Grace Campos


As Director, Mary Grace provides leadership and strategic planning for programmatic partnerships and initiatives throughout the Commonwealth that align with the College Access Collaborative’s mission to increase academic preparation, access and affordability for first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students from rural and inner city communities. Prior to joining the Collaborative team, she led pre-college outreach programs in the Student Success Center.  Mary Grace has extensive experience working with students who are first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented in higher education through her previous work with the ACCESS College Foundation in Norfolk, VA, the Women’s Center, Multicultural Programs and Services, and the McNair Scholars Program at Virginia Tech.

Mary Grace received a Bachelor of Arts degree from The College of William and Mary and a Master of Arts in Education degree from Virginia Tech. Her commitment to supporting, developing and educating students, families, and communities is grounded in her personal and professional mission to pass on the importance and value of higher education to those whose access to information and resources may be limited.

In her spare time, she enjoys running, baking, volunteering at the animal shelter, and spending time with family and friends.
