She plans and creates content for the main VCU social media sites, partners with departments on their universitywide social media goals and initiatives, and offers guidance and training for the numerous social media administrators across VCU.

Prior to that, she worked at VCU Facilities Management and the VCU Student Commons as the assistant director for event services, where she managed VCU’s scheduling system for events and space. In addition, she managed all the social media, marketing and communications for the Event Services unit. Randhawa has also served as VCU’s Staff Senate President from 2019-2022.

Randhawa is a two-time VCU alumna. She received her bachelor’s degree in mass communications with a concentration in public relations in 2014 and her master’s in mass communications with a concentration in strategic public relations from the VCU Robertson School of Media and Culture in 2021.
