Pratt Institute: Call for Applications

Pratt Institute

The faculty is composed of professional artists, designers, critics, historians, and practitioners, whose works, projects, and publications are recognized and respected around the world and whose ranks include numerous recipients of prestigious awards such as the Tiffany, Fulbright, and Guggenheim fellowships.

Two major objectives guide every department. The first is an emphasis on professional skills development. The school’s students gain the techniques, skills, methodology, and vocabulary required for success as productive artists, designers, and scholars.

The second objective—imperative so that professional expertise is not simply technical training—is development of the critical judgment and historical perspective needed to become a problem solver. Art and design history, melded with studies in the liberal arts and sciences, provide the context for stimulating intellectual and creative inquiry.

In addition to the outstanding curricula and faculty, the School of Art and Design offers a diverse range of degree offerings. Art and design programs are also enriched by Pratt’s distinguished professional programs in architecture and in information and library science, all within the broader cultural campus of New York City.

RESPONSIBILITIES of the chair will include oversight of budget and course scheduling; curriculum development, program reviews, and assessment; recruitment of faculty and students; participation in fundraising and development; and establishment of linkages with relevant professional organizations and leading practitioners.
