Every day on Radford University's campus, new ideas and discoveries take shape in many forms. We are focused on our students and our future and prepared to overcome today’s obstacles and develop tomorrow’s leaders. 

President Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D.

In the arts, new ways of expression are learned and shared. In the sciences, research and classroom simulations unlock limitless potential in bright and promising minds. On our campus, future leaders learn what it will take to help their own businesses thrive and provide economic growth and prosperity in countless communities. Every day, I am honored and privileged to be a part of this campus community and the Radford family!

Together, we make an impact on and around Radford University — and recent history affirms this in many ways. Radford's merger with the Jefferson College of Health Sciences to create Radford University Carilion formed one of the largest education and training programs in the healthcare field in Virginia. Additionally, Radford University is a leader for engaging in critical collaborations as evidenced by partnerships with many institutions, such as Emory & Henry College, George Mason University and New River Community College, thereby providing expanded opportunities for current and future students. We are also focused on the needs of the business community. Through the University’s IMPACT competency-based workforce training program, we are providing students with credentials and skills in high-need areas. Working together with other corporate and educational partners, we add value to a Radford education and make it truly exceptional.

At Radford University, we are focused on our students and our future. We are prepared to overcome today’s obstacles and develop tomorrow’s leaders. Please join us on this exciting Highlander journey — one where opposition meets goodwill and opportunity meets passion.
