Appointed as the new Executive Director of Human Resources and Chief Human Resources officer at Radford University, Ms. Christina Brogdon brings with her a renewed sense of focus. “My goals for this office include increased efficiency, logistics, providing excellent service on campus, and ensuring employees are working at maximum potential,” she said. Brogdon takes over at Radford after serving in the same capacity at Bluefield State College. A native of Bluefield, Brogdon graduated from Graham High School in 1988, thereafter attending Virginia Tech where she received a B.S. in management. She later received her MBA from Averett University.
Prior to her role as director of human resources at Bluefield State, Brogdon served in several capacities at Virginia Tech. Her positions included human resource consultant, and human resources coordinator and staffing specialist. She also served in human resources such as Macy’s, Belk and Hecht’s. Replacing previous HR director Joey Sword, Brogdon is nothing less than excited as the new leader of HR at Radford. “I am happy to be here at Radford, it’s home away from home. I have heard so many great things about the school and this area,” said Brogdon. “This is my dream job; I know this was my calling,” she added. Brogdon has held numerous positions of increasing responsibility throughout her career. Yet, her career in customer service has served her immensely in her career in human resources. “My background in sales and customer service taught me how to deal with people and the issues that would inevitably present themselves,” she said.
During her tenure at Bluefield State College, Ms. Brogdon became the State Coordinator for Region III/American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA), national not-for-profit association. With over 2,000 members, the American Association for Affirmative Action’s main goal is to enhance access and equity in employment, economic and educational opportunities.
In 2011 Brogdon was named Virginia’s TRIO Achiever. The TRIO programs are federal outreach and student service programs designed to provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Brogdon was recognized at both the Virginia Association of Educational Opportunity State Conference and at the Mid-Eastern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel Regional Conference in Washington, D.C. Brogdon is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership at East Tennessee State University; she remains active in her church and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.
