The school is interested in a candidate with a clear line of

environment and an ability to engage a community that puts a strong
emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The selected finalist
will have exemplary teaching and professional experience, including
a portfolio of inspiring and field-defining design work and/or body
of scholarship. Review of applications will begin on December 30,
2022 and continue until the position is filled.
