BATON ROUGE – Luz Randolph has been named Associate Vice Provost for Diversity in the LSU Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, or ODEI. 

"We are very fortunate to have found such an ideal candidate to assume the role of AVP in the ODEI. Randolph not only brings a wealth of experience in both development and diversity, but she comes with effusive praise from those who have worked with and supervised her.  She will certainly enrich LSU with her presence," said Dereck J. Rovaris, Sr., LSU Vice Provost for Diversity.
