Radford University welcomed President Brian Hemphill as he recently took over the position following a selection process that spanned several months.

“Throughout my academic and professional journey, I have been mentored by outstanding leaders who taught me many lessons,” Hemphill said in a letter to the university. “These individuals taught me the importance and vital role that a public university plays in our society by producing individuals who will lead with an unwavering commitment to public service. At Radford University, we will continue our mission of providing the best education and overall experience for our students.”

Hemphill emphasized Radford’s strong commitment to the caliber of its faculty and to providing students with opportunities to excel. He also highlighted the strength of Radford’s student achievements, both in classrooms on campus and in their professional fields after graduation.

“I sincerely look forward to engaging with the entire campus community. Over the course of the coming months, I will continue to meet with members of the Highlander family to learn more about Radford University and our collective aspirations for the future,” said Hemphill. "I encourage you to join me in these important discussions about key initiatives to move Radford University forward with an unwavering commitment to excellence, accountability, transparency and student-centeredness.”
