I know she will be an advocate for students and build upon ECTC’s commitment to be a student-centered college.”

She strives to provide a diverse, challenging and nurturing educational environment and is dedicated to understanding the issues students face on a daily basis and improving student outcomes, she said. 

“I am thrilled to be part of the amazing ECTC family,” Langford said. “My entire career has been devoted to establishing an inclusive institution and society in which active collaboration is valued and everyone feels that they have a voice. My objective is to create an environment in which all students can learn while having fun. Our students have persevered and achieved their academic goals as we have adopted an inclusive learning environment. I look forward to continuing that tradition of student success.”

Outside of her work in student affairs and campus operations, Langford is fluent in English and Spanish and aspires to learn more languages to communicate with students and people from all over the world. She also is passionate about working to alleviate global poverty and taking meaningful steps toward improving access to food and medical care. 

Langford graduated from Eastern Central University in Dominican Republic with a Doctor of Medicine. She has a Master of Arts in Higher Education from Walden University and a doctorate in Higher Education Administration and Educational Leadership (ABD) from Liberty University with a dissertation focus on the retention of predominately non-traditional minority students.
