About the Search

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) invites nominations, expressions of interest, and applications for the position of founding Director of the School of Art. This new role is located within the College of Liberal and Fine Arts (COLFA) and is an opportunity for a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and collegial academic leader to bring their expertise and creativity to this new endeavor and expanded activity and vision for the arts at UTSA. The School is new this academic year and emerges from a confluence of strategic initiatives including the merger of the Southwest School of Art with UTSA, an intentional and expansive revisioning process within COLFA, and the designation of UTSA as a Carnegie R1 institution. The UTSA School of Art aspires to be one of the major art programs in the United States and is seeking an entrepreneurial leader who is equally aspirational in their thinking and skilled at change management. This is a critical and expansive moment to shape the future of interdisciplinary arts education on a local, regional, and national scale. The robust art history and studio art programs include enthusiastic students, staff, and faculty who look forward to working in collaboration with a new leader who will launch the School of Art into its bright future. Significant programmatic expansion opportunities exist, moreover, in interdisciplinary areas such as art education and art entrepreneurship.
