Job Details

Walk among our towering pines, where the music from over one hundred practice huts invades your senses and lifts your spirits. Count how many nation’s flags you recognize as these symbols of our student’s home countries gently blow in the breeze above an auditorium that plays host to musical superstars. Escape the afternoon doldrums by dropping in on a pottery session, or an improv class, or a Nutcracker rehearsal. Fill your days with passion and purpose that stay with you long after you turn off your office lights. This is not your typical desk job—this is Interlochen.

Position Summary: Interlochen Center for the Arts ("Interlochen" or "ICA"), a national leader among educational, artistic, and cultural organizations, seeks an executive dean of admission. This is an outstanding opportunity for an individual with proven leadership capabilities, strong communication skills, and a track record of strategic, analytic decision making to participate in shaping the future of an extraordinary performing arts boarding school and summer program. The executive dean of admission will work directly with the vice president of enrollment management and marketing to engage in work related to the development of a comprehensive, data driven, and mission focused enrollment management plan and will see the impact of that work, both immediately and long term, embodied in ICA’s vibrant and diverse community.

The executive dean of admission is responsible for enhancing ICA’s position in the marketplace through carefully designed and executed enrollment and admission strategies. ICA will look to its new executive dean to support excellence and understand and communicate to prospective students and families the value of this distinctive educational institution.

  • The executive dean will collaborate across campus with leaders to ensure that Interlochen continues to attract outstanding mission-fit students with the potential to become the creative changemakers our world needs.

  • A primary focus will be to develop a strong partnership with our provost and our education department.

  • This position is responsible for not only recruiting for the Academy, but also for Interlochen’s renowned Arts Camp, as well as being engaged with enrollment activities for Interlochen Online.

  • The executive dean will identify opportunities to add student value and expand offerings through feedback from prospective students, parents, and partners. In these efforts, Interlochen will expand its market reach to continue to attract an excellent student body.

  • Other duties as assigned.


World-class educational and cultural opportunities converge on our glorious, 1,200-acre campus through Interlochen Arts Camp, our immersive and multidisciplinary summer arts program; Interlochen Arts Academy, the nation’s premier arts boarding high school; Interlochen Presents, a producer of more than 600 annual performances by internationally celebrated guest artists Interlochen students, and faculty, and  Interlochen College of Creative Arts, a convener for continuing arts education and lifelong learning.
