About the position
The Maryland Institute College of Art invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice Provost for Graduate Studies. Reporting to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Vice Provost will be joining MICA at a pivotal moment in the College’s history and will have the opportunity to collaborate with MICA’s students, faculty, staff and institutional leadership in realising MICA’s new mission and vision for transforming art and design education. Under the leadership of President Samuel Hoi, the MICA community has newly articulated its historic commitment as a socially engaged anchor institution in the City of Baltimore with global reach that attracts students and teachers/practitioners from around the world. For MICA, the empowerment of artists and designers as agents of social and cultural transformation is a key strategy for advancing art and design education and is essential to MICA’s commitment to fostering creative agency at both the local and global levels. MICA seeks a Vice Provost who shares this vision and who will work collaboratively with partners across the institution, in the region, and around the world to advance the development of MICA’s graduate programs in support of these bold ambitions.
MICA welcomes interest from candidates who share a common conviction that a powerfully reimagined approach to art and design education is and always has been a critical tool for transforming the world. Strong candidates may come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, including from schools of art and design or from comprehensive research universities. They should hold the terminal degree in their discipline, which should be either within art and design or a closely related field. It is critical that candidates demonstrate a passion for art and design as practitioners, teachers, and/or scholars, and have a significant record of achievement and innovation as a leader within a higher education environment.
