LYNCHBURG--The Randolph College Board of Trustees will announce Randolph’s 10th president on February 14 at 10:00 a.m.. The new president will be introduced and welcomed during this special ceremony in the newly renovated Student Center.

The announcement of Randolph’s 10th president comes after a nearly 9-month search process that attracted more than 90 strong candidates. The Presidential Search Committee was comprised of a mix of students, staff, faculty, alumnae, and trustees. These individuals worked diligently with Dr. Kate Haley of the executive search firm, Witt/Kieffer, to ensure that the candidates presented to the Board of Trustees were highly qualified and the best fit for our institution. We thank all of the members of this committee for their long hours and dedication.

Randolph’s Board of Trustees unanimously selected the next president of Randolph College during its regular board meeting this past weekend. The new president will follow Randolph’s current president, John E. Klein, who will retire June 30, after successfully leading Randolph through its transition to coeducation.
