This is in promotion of our social media campaign to bring awareness and support the excellence of historically black colleges and universities.

This Tuesday (5/19/15), we highlighted Dr. Kent J. Smith, Jr., (pictured on the right), President of Langston University.

Dr. Kent J. Smith, Jr. was named 16th president of Langston University by the Board of Regents for the Oklahoma Agricultural & Mechanical Colleges on January 19, 2012. He assumed office on June 4, 2012 and also serves as professor of education.

A Louisiana native, Dr. Smith earned a bachelor of science in secondary education, a master of education in educational administration and supervision from Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, and a doctorate in education and human resources studies, with a concentration in educational administration and student affairs, from Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

Prior to coming to Langston University, Dr. Smith served as the vice president for student affairs, chief student affairs officer and assistant professor of education at Ohio University in Athens. He is a former dean of students at Auburn University in Alabama, director of multicultural affairs at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and was an adjunct professor at Cleveland State University. Dr. Smith was also an adjunct professor of education at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, he was an assistant director of black student services as well.

A deeply committed dynamic leader that is student-focused, Dr. Smith brings with him the experience and potential to take Oklahoma's only historically black institution of higher education to the next level of academic excellence and national preeminence. He is the parent to four sons - Trey, Tyler, Trent and Tanner (pictured above) and daughter Morgan.

Langston University was named D.J's Music Site HBCU Campaign Fund's January 2015 HBCU of the Month Supported Institution.
