Randi Vandegrift, MBA


As a 20+ year veteran of Gallaudet University, I have been able to obtain a bevy of information, resources and experiences of the operations and educational mounts of the university.  In those 20+ years I have received valuable experience in both Academic Affairs (1999 - 2014) and Administration and Finance (2014 - present) which affords me the opportunity to view each angle of every angle.

Over the past 20 years I have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology (BSIT) and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA).  I have found this education to be valuable in my current position as Contracts & Purchasing Agent and affords me the knowledge and wealth of information, experience and education to contribute new ideas to existing ones to amplify Gallaudet’s success. 

On a personal note, I am the proud Mother of 21 year old twin daughters that are currently seeking their own degrees.  One in education and the other in criminal justice.  I also enjoy DIY projects.  It further extends my creative side!

I thrive being part of a team and excel individually as well.  You might say I am ambidextrous in the work field (LOL).   Leading the pack or following a strong leader, doing what it takes to keep Gallaudet going forward and strong.
