There have been just seven presidents throughout Radford University's 106 years of educating and empowering students to transcend their potential and thrive as professionals in their fields. For decades Radford University has seen innovation and growth, excellence in teaching and mentoring, and been a leader in active research and discovery.

Forging ahead, the Radford University Board of Visitors is honored to announce the Investiture Ceremony of Dr. Brian O. Hemphill as the institution's seventh president on October 13, 2016 with a day filled with equal parts of tradition and pageantry on the Moffett lawn.
