Robin Randall has been named vice president for enrollment management at Mount Holyoke College.

She was named by President Sonya Stephens after a national search. Her appointment is effective March 1. 

“Robin is a truly brilliant and creative thinker, as well as a collaborative, strategic and analytical leader who asks important questions to move an agenda forward,” said Stephens. “She listens carefully to find solutions and to imagine the ways in which we might do things differently or better. She brings technical expertise and deep experience with financial aid and enrollment, as well as an inclusive, student-service orientation.”

Randall has been serving in this position in an interim capacity since September. She came to Mount Holyoke after 22 years at Wheaton College, where she had most recently served as assistant vice president for enrollment and student financial services. She is a strategic analyst of admission data, as well as an accomplished leader in the use of technology in enrollment operations and recruitment strategy.

“Robin has impressed us all with her thoughtful and thought-provoking engagement, her leadership of the division, and her commitment to Mount Holyoke and to students, faculty and staff,” Stephens said. “She builds inclusive and collaborative relationships and she is already making a difference in the way we support applicants and current students.”

She is delighted to be continuing the work she has begun at the College, Randall said.

“This is an important time and Mount Holyoke is an exciting place to make an impact on the next generation of leaders,” Randall said. “I am looking forward to building on the great work we’ve started over the past six months. I appreciate the confidence and trust the community has placed in my leadership.”

Randall earned a Bachelor of Science degree in communications from Ithaca College and an MBA from the Simmons College Graduate School of Management, now known as the School of Business.
