 Albion, Mich.
 
Albion College President Donna Randall has announced she will conclude her presidencyat the end of her six-year term on June 30. The Board of Trustees has asked Randall to continue on as

Chancellor to focus on fundraising, educational partnerships and nationaladvocacy
  As chancellor, Randall will focus on three critical areas: fundraising for the library and athletic complexrenovations, development of educational partnerships, and national advocacy.
“Donna is uniquely suited to advance our efforts in these pivotal development areas and welcomes the
opportunity to serve the college in this advocacy
role,” said board chair Paul Tobias, who led the search
committee that hired Randall in 2007.In her new position, Randall will continue to contribute to The Huffington Post College Blog and will
represent Albion College on the Council of Independent Colleges’ newly formed Campaign for the Liberal
 Arts advisory committee. As one of a handful of college and university leaders invited to serve on thecommittee, Randall will help the CIC articulate the value of liberal arts education in America. She haswritten, spoken and lobbied widely on the subject in the last six years.
“In addition to my other roles, I am deeply committed to raising funds to c
omplete two renovation projectsstarted during my presidency
the upgrades in our outdoor athletic facilities and the transformation of thelibrary into a technology-
enhanced learning space,” Randall said. The library campaign has seen
significant success in recent months with major gifts received from the Weatherwax Foundation inJackson, the Strosacker Foundation in Midland, and from Albion alumni.
“I appreciate that the board has supported my presidency and my desire to move into a broader advocacy
role.
I look forward to advancing several initiatives and paving the way for a smooth transition,” she said.
 
A rich and lasting legacy of service
 
 As Albion’s first female president, Randall championed a number of bold initiatives that have built on thecollege’s
rich 178-year legacy. Chief among them is theAlbion Advantage,a four-year career-readiness
program that leverages the college’s historic strengths in liberal arts education and prof 
essionalpreparation. The Albion Advantage is among the first programs in the nation to fully integrate rigorousstudy in the arts and sciences, hands-
on learning opportunities and career readiness throughout students’
undergraduate years.
“Donna has raise
d the profile of Albion as a top liberal arts college, skillfully melding academic
preparation with career readiness,” said Tobias. “This is clearly demonstrated in the alumni who areachieving uncommon success in a difficult employment market.”

t her six-year tenure, Donna has committed herself to strengthening the academic and co-curricular experiences of Albion students
by enhancing facilities, forging international partnerships and
launching the Albion Advantage,” he added. “We are grateful fo
