BFA Interior Design Chair

Description

The School of Visual Arts (SVA) is pleased to announce a search for its next Chair of the BFA Interior Design Program.  The new chair of the program will have the distinct opportunity to build upon the substantial success of the distinguished former chair, and to lead the program’s faculty and students into the next chapter of the department’s evolution.

 

SVA invites nominations and applications for the position of a full-time department chair of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in (BFA) Interior Design program.  The Chair is responsible for the overall management and future direction of department’s academic programs, in accordance with SVA’s mission and in support of the institution’s strategic plan.  The Chair ensures that the BFA program remains in compliance with the Council for Interior Design Accreditation accreditation requirements, and keeps abreast of developments in the New York City and State Departments of Education mandates and requirements.  The successful candidate will be expected to begin on August 1, 2018.

 

Program Description

BFA Interior Design is all about possibility—the possibility of imagining a space for people to live, work and play in and then moving that space from concept to design to reality. Taught by award-winning designers, architects and artists, students learn to integrate the latest technology and materials with time-tested processes and principles of design. The faculty and curriculum are guided by a commitment to sustainability, the interplay between art and design and the responsibility of design to address social issues.

 

Working in an environment akin to a professional design studio, students are encouraged to think like architects and engineers as well as designers, and to take creative risks and flex with changes in our culture. With unlimited access to the department studio, computer lab and printing room, they have the opportunity to explore the power of both pencil and computer.

 

Because good design begins with good thinking, required coursework deals with the humanities and sciences as well as the history of interiors and architecture. Students are informed and inspired by the diversity of New York City; conversations with faculty, guest lecturers and classmates; and by visits to museums, physical and virtual libraries, galleries and showrooms.  

 

Responsibilities

 

  • Manage a staff of 2 full-time administrative employees and approximately 25 faculty.
  • Recruit, develop, and inspire a cohort of faculty whose pedagogy and research support the highest standards of interior design, including performance evaluations and recommendations concerning contracts and teaching assignments, as applicable.
  • Responsible for actively engaging with external partners-colleagues and industry professionals in an effort to continuously raise the profile of the program.
  • Prepare course schedules and catalog descriptions, and the assignment of faculty to their courses.
  • Manage and oversee the department’s academic and administrative operations;
  • Collaborate with the Registrar and the Office of Academic Affairs in class scheduling, class cancellations, and other detailed matters relating to the administration of the academic calendar.
