Job Details

Arizona State University invites applications and nominations for the next Senior Vice Provost and Dean (SVP/Dean) of The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts (the Institute). 

ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts is the largest comprehensive design and arts school in the country, located within a dynamic research university focused on transformative change. Built on a unique combination of disciplines, the Institute is committed to developing and scaling ideas that strengthen the role of designers and artists across all areas of society and culture and to increasing the capacity of artists and designers to make a difference in their communities. 

Over the past decade, the Herberger Institute has built a reputation as a hub of creativity and innovation that elevates the relevance of design and arts in public life and shapes the future of the creative workforce. Serving as a cultural anchor for the university, the Institute is home to exceptional facilities and leading-edge research centers in Tempe, Mesa, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. The Institute offers 125 degrees across a wide range of disciplines, including visual arts, dance, music, theatre, film, architecture, landscape architecture and urban design, industrial design and graphic design, fashion, and transdisciplinary digital media programs. The Institute has a budget of approximately $90 million annually and is the academic home to 8300 students and 750 faculty across four campuses plus growing global online enrollment.

The Herberger Institute has built a platform like no other to advance talented students from every background, to connect art and design with other sectors and disciplines throughout the university and beyond, and to drive innovation in the technologies of human expression. The new SVP/Dean will have the opportunity to articulate the strategic value that the Institute contributes and to shape and execute the vision for the Institute’s next chapter. Candidates must have a record of scholarly achievement in research and/or practice commensurate with an appointment as a tenured full professor at ASU.

All inquiries, applications, and nominations should be directed in confidence electronically below.
