Rochester Institute of Technology seeks a Dean for the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)

We seek a dynamic academic leader who is a strong champion of high standards in teaching and scholarship and who is dedicated to fostering a diverse community within CIAS and RIT. The individual should have interdisciplinary scholarly skills and a distinguished record of accomplishment. CIAS is one of RIT’s eight colleges. It includes six schools and a diverse portfolio of programs, many of which are consistently rated among the best in their fields. The schools within CIAS are: School for American Crafts, School of Art, School of Design, School of Film and Animation, School of Photographic Arts and Sciences and School of Print Media. The College comprises 129 faculty members, 82 staff members, and over 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students and has an operating budget of approximately 23 million USD.

This is a unique opportunity for a creative individual to further the vision for CIAS and its distinction in global education among the national and international art and design, imaging arts and sciences communities. As the chief academic and administrative officer, the Dean will have a key role in shaping the College’s identity and leading educational reform in the areas of creativity and innovation within the college and within the University. The Dean will work collaboratively with faculty, staff and students as an effective advocate for the college in its future direction within RIT and on a global stage.

A committee has been appointed by the Provost to conduct this search, assisted by Isaacson, Miller, a national search firm. Applications, nominations, and requests for a full position profile should be sent electronically and in confidence to Nureen Das, Associate, Isaacson, Miller, [email protected]

Rochester Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity Employer and values campus diversity and demonstrates this in campus initiatives at our student-centered innovative university; therefore persons of color and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
