  17. Northwestern State president to retireRead the original story

    Friday Apr 11 | The Town Talk

    NATCHITOCHES, La. - Northwestern State University President Randall J. Webb announced Friday that he will retire later this year. Webb has served as Northwestern State's president since 1996. In July, he will become the university's longest-serving president, surpassing Victor L. Roy, who was president from 1911 to 1929. Webb said his retirement date will be "based on when my replacement can assume the official duties and responsibilities of the office of president. I want to ensure that we effect a smooth transition for the incoming president." "Brenda and I owe a debt of gratitude to each and every member of the Board of Supervisors of the University of Louisiana System for their support of us," Webb said. "Thanks to them and ULS staff members, along with faculty, staff, students and alumni of the university, our term of office has been most enjoyable and productive." He added "We are grateful to many wonderful people that Northwestern has made marked progress and achieved many successes over the past years. Indeed, we feel our lives have been blessed beyond measure because of people who have graciously supported us and the cause of our beloved university." Webb said he looks forward to the "transition to other areas of service in life" and to spending more time with his family. In a statement, UL System President Sandra Woodley said: "The Board and I would like to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Webb for his commitment and service. Randy and Brenda Webb have both given so much of themselves over the past decades to Northwestern State and the Natchitoches community. Their contributions will long be remembered." Under Webb's leadership, Northwestern State has received national and international attention for its academic programs and student accomplishments. University facilities have been renovated, and two capital campaigns have set fund-raising records at the school. Webb has led the move toward higher admissions standards at the university. Webb led the university's outreach by spearheading the development at NSU of the largest electronic education and distance-learning network of any university in Louisiana. Northwestern State offers courses and 34 accredited degree programs to students through Internet and compressed video. Several university online programs have been rated as being among the best buys in the United States. The university also achieved Tier I status in the U.S. News and World Report ranking of regional universities on two occasions. The master's program in nursing was rated as one of the Top 100 by U.S. News. Webb has held positions of leadership at the national level in intercollegiate athletics. He has served as chair of the board of directors of the Southland Conference and has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Executive Council and the NCAA Division I Board of Directors that oversee all major policy decisions by the governing body for major college sports. He served as the Southland Conference representative on the NCAA Presidential Advisory Group.
