The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice Provost for Undergraduate 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, and staff in realizing MICA’s new mission and vision for transforming art and design education.

The Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies holds a strategic, senior level position on the leadership teams of both the Provost and the President. The role also includes managing four direct reports and oversight of the Undergraduate Studies staff and the Undergraduate Program Chairs.

For MICA, social engagement is a key strategy to ensure relevance in contemporary art and design making, and is essential to MICA’s bold commitment to creative agency at both the local and global levels. The College seeks a Vice Provost who shares this vision and who will work collaboratively across the entire College to ensure the integrity, excellence and ongoing development of the undergraduate educational programs.

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.
