about President Lindgren

President Lindgren’s tenure has been a consequential era for Randolph-Macon, during which the College has grown and flourished in enrollment, a revitalized campus, new academic and co-curricular programs, and significant private support of the College. New student enrollment increased by 40% and over 10 new majors were created. During this era, 11 new building have been constructed and 5 major renovations completed, totaling more than $100 million. This ambitious agenda has been possible because of private support, which reached an all-time high in both dollars raised and participation.
