He has also directed study abroad programs in China, Mexico, Spain, and the Dominican Republic for secondary, undergraduate, and graduate students.

Dr. Randolph’s research, publications, and professional engagement have focused on a variety of critical issues in language education, including teaching Spanish to heritage and native speakers and incorporating justice-oriented and anti-colonial pedagogies.

Throughout Dr. Randolph’s career, he has served in leadership roles in various language organizations, including president of the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina (FLANC), president of the North Carolina Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), coordinator of the Cape Fear Foreign Language Collaborative (CFFLC), board member for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), and founding vice-chair of ACTFL’s special interest group for Critical and Social Justice approaches.

Dr. Randolph is a North Carolina native (born in Wilmington) and a proud graduate of North Carolina's public schools (East Columbus High School '97; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill [BA '01, MAT '03, EdD '11]). As a longtime member and past president of FLANC, he looks forward to returning home to share, learn, and fellowship with his colleagues from North Carolina.
