He’s been Northwestern State University’s president since 1996. Now, Dr. Randall Webb has announced that he will retire later this year.  

He says his exact retirement date will be determined by when his replacement can assume the official duties and responsibilities of the office.

Dr. Webb will become the university’s longest-serving president in July of this year.  That record was previously held by Dr. Victor Roy, who served as president from 1911 to 1929.

In a statement from the university, Dr. Webb said, “Brenda and I owe a debt of gratitude to each and every member of the Board of Supervisors of the University of Louisiana System for their support of us.  Thanks to them and ULS staff members, along with faculty, staff, students, and alumni of the university, our term of office has been most enjoyable and productive.”

He went on to say, “We are grateful to many wonderful people that Northwestern has made marked progress and achieved many successes over the past years.  Indeed, we feel our lives have been blessed beyond measure because of people who have graciously supported us and the cause of our beloved university.”

Dr. Webb said he looks forward to the “transition to other areas of service in life” and to spending more time with his family.
