Position Summary

The UNCG College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) is a vibrant arts community that is active on campus and deeply embedded in the city, state, and region. The CVPA serves approximately 1,500 undergraduate and graduate majors with a full-time faculty and staff of over one hundred, making it one of the largest such schools in the South. Greensboro, equidistant from Atlanta and Washington, DC, and located between the mountains and the seashore, has recently been designated an All-American City. Greensboro is extremely arts-oriented and, along with its sister cities of Winston-Salem and High Point, provides a vital cultural stimulus to the entire Piedmont region.

The UNCG Arts Administration program is now in its second full year. It is the only undergraduate Arts Administration program in the University of North Carolina system. There is strong student interest in the program; currently there are 75 arts administration majors and minors enrolled. The very recent unification of the visual with the performing arts has led to the formation of the new College of Visual and Performing Arts. It is believed that this unification will further enhance interest in arts administration.

The College of Visual and Performing Arts seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position to direct and teach in a new, fast-growing, and interdisciplinary, undergraduate arts administration program.

  • Have a current knowledge of the field of arts administration;
  • Lead a rapidly growing arts administration program that draws students from a variety of fields in and out of the arts;
  • Demonstrate effectiveness in teaching and mentoring students;
  • Be prepared to create a vision and strategic plan for the UNCG arts administration program;
  • Contribute to curriculum development, faculty governance, and administrative life of the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the campus;

  • Integrate social and community-engaged art practices and other innovations into the arts administration curriculum.
