The Inaugural President of the United States Naval Community College

Randi Cosentino will serve as the first president of the new United States Naval Community College. The U.S. Naval Community College will partner with civilian universities and community colleges to provide enlisted Sailors and Marines an opportunity to earn an associate’s degree in high demand fields like cybersecurity, information technology, and engineering. The initial cohort of students is expected to begin instruction in January 2021.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our nation’s naval services and to lead this new institution, as it develops innovative and collaborative approaches to educating America’s Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen,” Cosentino said. “The need for critical thinking, analytical problem solving, and effective communication skills that a college education provides has never been more important than it is in today’s rapidly changing world. I look forward to enhancing naval readiness by developing the intellectual foundations of our enlisted force.”

Dr. Cosentino has been serving as served as the chief academic officer for Guild Education. There, she worked with major Fortune 500 companies to provide college-level education and training to their workforces.

Dr. Cosentino earned a bachelor’s degree and an educational doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.
