The School of Design at Syracuse University, in College of Visual and Performing Arts is an inquisitive and intelligent community of faculty and students who address issues in context. As a professionally oriented academic unit in a large research university, the School is fully committed to forging bold, imaginative, reciprocal relationships with constituents who are local as well as global. With a long and distinguished history at Syracuse University, the School of Design currently offers several highly-ranked undergraduate programs in Fashion, Environmental + Interior and Communications Design, a BID in Industrial + Interactive Design. The School also houses a graduate program in Museum Studies and an MFA in Design. In 2015, the School of Design introduced a dedicated first year experience that has proved to be extremely effective in providing students with a strong multidisciplinary foundation in the fundamental elements of design. To enhance our current offerings, we are developing a new undergraduate BS in Design. This will provide a counterpoint offer to the other BFA/BID offerings, allowing students to curate a multidisciplinary course of study while at the same time fully leveraging all that the University has to offer. Enrolling approximately 500 undergraduate and 50 graduate students, the School of Design occupies the Nancy Cantor Warehouse in downtown Syracuse.
We are currently seeking to fill two positions and are particularly interested in candidates who have demonstrated commitment to excellence by providing leadership in teaching, creative work, and service toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment, and who have the communication skills and cross-cultural abilities to maximize their effectiveness with diverse groups of students, colleagues and community members.
