The School of Art is a dynamic, forward-thinking school with a commitment to interdisciplinary art and design practice through a social justice lens. We are looking for colleagues to join our internationally recognized faculty that includes multiple Guggenheim, Fulbright, and NEA recipients. Candidates should be committed to teaching and mentorship of a student body that includes many first-generation college students, students of color, and international students.
Faculty and students forge cross-disciplinary experimentation, challenging conventional thinking and blurring lines between traditional artistic disciplines, indeed, between the arts and the other humanities and sciences.
The George Mason University, Mason Exhibitions within the College of Visual & Performing Arts (CVPA), seeks qualified applicants for a Program Manager. George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment. George Mason University is committed to values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access that inform academic excellence. We are committed to dismantling racism in our structures, polices, and practices. We hope to identify individuals who will support our anti-racist mission. We seek candidates who will not only enhance our representational diversity but whose research, teaching, and community engagement efforts contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty.
