Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.




President Lynchburg, VA

Randolph College, a nationally recognized, private, liberal arts and sciences institution, welcomes nominations and applications for its next President.

The 11th President of Randolph will assume leadership of an institution that is uniquely defined by its pioneering curricular model, close-knit campus community, exceptional faculty, healthy endowment, rich traditions, renowned collection of American art, and growing NCAA Division III athletics program. With an enviably accessible faculty and an average class size of 11, Randolph offers the quintessential small liberal arts college experience – and one that also embraces a forward-facing view of liberal arts education in the 21st century.

From its inception, Randolph has been defined by its commitment to delivering excellent, highly-individualized educational experiences for its students – first to women, now to a diverse, coeducational student body. The successful candidate will be eager to fuse Randolph’s distinctive history, notable recent progress, and bold plans for the future, all while advancing the College’s fundamental mission: preparing students to engage the world critically and creatively, live and work honorably, and experience life abundantly.

Randolph’s next leader will be motivated to work collaboratively with a committed Board of Trustees, leadership team, and faculty and staff to harness an ambitious strategic vision for the institution – a vision that encompasses a captivating College identity, enhanced academic programming and partnerships, robust student enrollment and retention, a strengthened financial position, and heightened public recognition and awareness of the College and the transformative experience it provides its students. Randolph will continue its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

A search committee composed of board members, faculty, staff, and students has been formed to spearhead the search for the College’s new leader.

All inquiries, applications, and nominations for this opportunity should be directed to the search firm electronically below.

Ponneh Varho is leading this search with Claire Hennessey, Brinkley Serkedakis, and Auriel Haack.
