Executive Dean, Faculty of Arts and Design
Location: Canberra, Australia
The University of Canberra is a deeply ambitious institution that values collegial, inclusive, and respectful leadership. Anchored in Australia’s national capital working with government, business and industry, we challenge the status quo by always pursuing better ways to teach, learn, research which serves our communities and our nation.
Our purpose is to provide education that offers high quality transformative experiences; to engage in research that makes an early and important difference to the world around us; and to contribute to the building of just, prosperous, healthy and sustainable communities.
We are now seeking an innovative and visionary person to join us as our new Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Design. The Faculty is home to two schools, the School of Arts and Communication, and the School of Design and the Built Environment alongside the News and Media Research Centre and the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research.
The Faculty of Arts and Design is a diverse faculty, offering programs that range from the highly conceptual to the deeply practical across six broad disciplines (Arts; Built Environment; Communication and Media; Creative Industries; Design; Digital Design). Our mission is to educate and inspire creative professionals to thrive in the rapidly evolving landscape of 21st-century culture, work and play.
As Executive Dean, you will have the opportunity to shape the future of the Faculty as it responds to the University’s decadal strategy which is based on the values embodied in Galambany: Together we work to empower, connect and share knowledge with our people, culture and places.
