Randall Langston named new vice president for enrollment management
After an extensive national search, Texas Woman’s University today (April 12, 2017) announced it has named Randall Langston as its vice president for enrollment management, effective June 19.
Langston, a Houston native, currently serves as the assistant vice president for enrollment management and acting director of undergraduate admissions for The College at Brockport - State University of New York. Prior to that, he served as executive director of enrollment management for the University of Northern Colorado.
“Randall’s extensive expertise and broad experience in providing vision, creativity and leadership in enrollment management aligns well with our strategic enrollment and retention goals,” said Carine M. Feyten, chancellor and president.
Langston has led Brockport to several consecutive years of record enrollment, record diversity of first-year students and a 35-percent increase in minority enrollment overall. In addition, during his tenure at Brockport, first-year student retention has increased to 82 percent, which is 10 percent higher than peer institutions.
“Randall also is considered a national expert on predictive modeling and how to use statistical development in enrollment management. He has presented nationally on this topic and written extensively on this issue in peer-reviewed scholarly journals,” Feyten added.
Langston has played a leadership role in enrollment management and admissions for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, the University of Findlay in Ohio and the University of Denver.
He is slated to receive his Ph.D. from the University of The Free State, Republic of South Africa in July 2017; and received his M.Ed. from Texas Tech University and his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University.
“I am delighted to return to Texas and join TWU at this exciting time in its history. I was tremendously impressed with the university’s mission and am thrilled to continue to advance the mission-centric goals of the nation’s largest university primarily focused on educating women,” said Langston, who also has provided strategic enrollment counseling to several colleges and universities across the U.S.
“I am excited to work with Chancellor Feyten, and the faculty and staff to implement the university-wide strategic plan and build upon the important work done by others which have led to significant enrollment growth over the past several years,” he added.
