Dean, College of Fine Arts
The University of Kentucky is conducting a national search for the dean of the UK College of Fine Arts. The dean serves as the academic and administrative head of the college and is responsible for the leadership and administration of all aspects of the college. The College is comprised of four academic units that directly serve the mission of the College: the School of Art and Visual Studies, the Department of Arts Administration, the School of Music, and the Department of Theatre and Dance.
The search committee has selected three finalists who will visit campus, participate in open forums and meet with constituent groups in the UK community. Names and CVs for these individuals will be posted 48 business hours in advance of their forums. The campus community will have the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback.
