The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), seeks a dynamic, strategic, and innovative leader in the arts to serve as its next Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA), a College rich in history and reputation. The Dean will have an extraordinary opportunity to shape the largest and most comprehensive arts program in North Carolina as well as enhance and further CVPA’s status as a premier institution for visual and performing arts in the nation.

UNCG is a public, coeducational, doctoral-granting, residential university and one of the three original institutions of the University of North Carolina System. The University holds two classifications from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching — as a “doctoral university with high-research activity” and for deep “community engagement” in its curriculum, outreach, and partnerships. The University is known for its inclusive learning community with a campus wide culture that embodies access, equity, diversity, excellence, and collaboration. The campus is known for its leadership in visual and performing arts, promoting vibrant communities, health and wellness, and translating scholarly findings into programs, policy, and practice.

A jewel of the University, CVPA is a nationally recognized, high profile college, established from a merger of strong components. The Dean will work with stakeholders to explore and strengthen a common identity for the College, establishing more interdisciplinary connections across programs. A vibrant and clear communicator, the next Dean will work with faculty to build innovative programs and partnerships across campus and the Greensboro community. The Dean will be a seasoned leader with an established administrative track record who will grow enrollment and attract and allocate additional resources. S/he will be a talented performer, artist, teacher and/or scholar who thrives by shining a light on the talents of others.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a transformative time at an outstanding College aspiring to reach the next level of excellence. The Dean will be an exceptional leader who will work with the College community to shape a vision for the future of CVPA. Reporting to a supportive and engaged Provost, and managing a talented and dedicated team of faculty and staff, the next Dean will bring the College to a new era of achievement in the arts.
