Hope College Seeks Full Time Art Department Chair
Hope College seeks a dynamic, visionary, and collegial leader to serve as Associate or Full Professor of Art/Art Education and Chair of Art & Art History, beginning July 1, 2015. Strong candidates will demonstrate robust accomplishments in the creation, scholarship and teaching of Art/Art Education, some previous academic leadership at the college or university level, and a commitment to the liberal arts in the context of the historic Christian faith.

The Associate or Full Professor of Art/Art Education will lead a department of nationally and internationally recognized studio artists, primarily in painting, sculpture, and drawing and design; a core of well-regarded art historians, particularly in early-, early-modern, and modern European art; and a department with a longstanding tradition of excellence associated with some of the most accomplished American designers. The Chair of Art & Art History will work in collaboration with the Founding Director of the Kruizenga Art Museum, which will open to the public in the fall of 2015. Along with the Kruizenga and the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts, which will also open in 2015, the new arts corridor includes the De Pree Center, which has long housed a gallery for avant-garde and student art, as well as work by the art department faculty.

Responsibilities of the Chair will include oversight of the department’s three divisions (Art, Art History, and Art Education), as well as direct advising and supervision of Art Education students. Teaching responsibilities may include studio classes and interdisciplinary arts courses. Successful candidates will have three years of experience in K-12 teaching, licensure, and will have clinical supervision of Art Education students. The Department Chair oversees approximately 9 FTE of faculty (tenured or tenure-track, adjunct, and term instructors).

Hope College is listed among the 40 schools highlighted in Loren Pope’s book, Colleges that Change Lives. The following excerpt conveys well the institutional ethos:

“Every school in this book runs on the power of student-professor relationship; there’s simply no other way for a college to do the life changing work of mentoring and teaching students. But at Hope, more than anywhere else, students mention how much their professors care about them as people, not just as mini academics.”

The arts have been foundational to Hope College’s identity. Hope was the first private, four-year undergraduate liberal arts college in the United States with national accreditation in art, dance, music and theatre, and remains one of few such schools to hold the distinction today. The Art Department is also one of the few such programs with majors in Studio, Art History, and Art Education.

At Hope College, our faculty adhere to the highest standards of teaching, scholarship, and artistic production and actively work to fully involve students in the educational experience. We embrace an institutional core liberal arts curriculum that emphasizes interdisciplinary learning and educating the entire person – mind, body, and spirit.

HOPE COLLEGE is a Christian, coeducational, residential liberal arts undergraduate college affiliated with the Reformed Church in America; has approximately 3,300 students and 250 faculty; is a member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association; is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and has 10 accredited programs (TEAC, ACS, NASAD, NASD, NASM, NAST, CCNE, CSWE, ABET, and CAATE). Hope is located in Holland, MI, a city of 35,000 enriched by a significant Latino, Asian and African-American population in a rapidly growing urban area of over 100,000 near Lake Michigan and within short driving distance of Grand Rapids (over 500,000), and relatively close to Ann Arbor and Chicago. Additional information can be found on the web at http://www.hope.edu.

The Holland area is nationally recognized as an attractive area in which to live, work, and play:
