The University of North Texas (UNT)’s long-standing and dynamic art history program has recently been designated an autonomous department within the College of Visual Arts and Design (CVAD) and we are looking for an inaugural Chair who will bring a consultative approach to this new identity and structure. The ideal candidate will be a collaborative partner in creating an environment that fosters faculty and student success. We are seeking a Chair that will complement existing strengths in global art, architecture, and design history. The successful candidate will bring direction and leadership to the department, which is housed in a Carnegie Tier 1 research university. We are seeking a Chair who will advocate for the role of the department’s productive and committed faculty within the context of a research university and who brings strong interpersonal skills in working to support faculty in a small, vital department that is essential to the overall success of the college.
The Chair is responsible for leading faculty in the development of program curricula, identity, and relevance. The Chair serves as an advocate for art history faculty both individually and collectively. Additional responsibilities include college and university service, teaching in the program, student mentoring, and sustaining relevant professional activities.
