— An administrator at a university in Texas will become Langston University's new vice president for student affairs this month.

Raphael Moffett will step into the position Aug. 29, Langston officials announced this week. Moffett comes to Langston from Trinity University in San Antonio, where he has served for the past three years as director of campus and community involvement.

Before his time at Trinity, Moffett worked in residential life at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta. He also served as adviser of African-American Student Affairs at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and as director of student life at Morehouse College in Atlanta.

Moffett replaces previous Vice President Angelia Jones, who held the position until earlier this year.

Originally from Lacey, Wash., Moffett holds a bachelor's degree in English from Washington State University and master's and doctorate's degree in educational leadership from Clark Atlanta University.

“Langston is a phenomenal place with incredible potential for growth,” Moffett said. “The president has an extensive vision for the university and I certainly want to have a part in bringing it to reality.”
