Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
Randy Williams is the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at North Carolina Wesleyan College where he serves as the chief student affairs officer by providing leadership for the division. Prior to his arrival at Wesleyan, he was most recently the Assistant Dean of Students at the College of William & Mary and before that position, the Associate Dean of Students at Hampden-Sydney College.
Previous directorships of diversity, residence life, orientation, and transfer student programs have allowed Randy to contribute to the development of students since his entry into higher education in 1998. He understands the value in identifying the developmental level of each individual student and then providing the services, advising, and programs that help transform that student into a more informed person capable of making better decisions in all of life’s matter. Randy believes that North Carolina Wesleyan College is a great place to employ student development theories and practices that nurture transformative learning among the students.
Randy’s education includes a Bachelor’s of Science degree in physics from Hampden-Sydney College, a Master’s of Science degree in Counselor Education, and Randy is currently in his fourth year of the Higher Education Administration doctoral program at the College of William & Mary. His research focuses on the concept of resilience, specifically, identifying protective factors that will aid college undergraduates in becoming successful.
Randy resides in Rocky Mount, NC, with his wife, Chiquita, and their two daughters.
