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.
