    DEAN, COLLEGE OF PERFORMING ARTS

    ORANGE, CALIFORNIA


    Chapman University, a private university in beautiful Southern California, seeks an ambitious and inspiring leader to serve as the next Dean of the College of Performing Arts. The Dean will create a vibrant atmosphere of unmatched excellence in undergraduate arts education.


    Chapman University is ranked in the top tier of western universities and was recently identified by U.S. News & World Report as the number one "Up-and-Coming University" in the Western Region. It has gained national recognition with its commitment to excellence through both research and innovative teaching and it attracts high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students from all over the United States and several foreign countries. In the last two decades, Chapman has made remarkable progress growing in both size and national prominence. Today, 7,570 students are currently enrolled in nine schools and colleges that offer traditional undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences, exciting interdisciplinary programs and select pre-professional and graduate programs.


    The College of Performing Arts (CoPA) was formed in 2007, uniting the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music, Department of Dance, and Department of Theater into a comprehensive performing arts unit. The goal was to create a more highly acclaimed regional, national and international reputation for CoPA that would build upon the successes of the three individually accredited programs. Today, CoPA educates 473 undergraduate students who major in degree programs offered by CoPA. In addition, CoPA avails its classes and performance opportunities to students from across the University as evidenced by the 1,578 students who enrolled in CoPA courses in the 2013-2014 academic year. Thus, undergraduate students in CoPA and across the university are benefiting from the expertise of a world-class faculty who teach and train students and avail them to opportunities for scholarship, creativity, free expression, and real-world experiences.


    The college offers BA, BM and BFA degrees that allow students to enter into a variety of professional fields or continue their graduate studies at prestigious institutions upon graduation. CoPA is home to 35 full-time faculty, 5 Emeriti faculty, and 3 artists-in-residence who are consummate professionals dedicated to helping students achieve their dreams and aspirations and to their own professional performances, scholarship, and/or research. CoPA also includes a Production Management Department, a highly talented group of professionals, who provide support for live productions. CoPA will also soon benefit from the addition of the world-class state of the art Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts. The 1,100 seat facility will serve as the new home for CoPA's signature productions and will offer space for creative collaboration, teaching and practice. The Musco Center will transform the campus community as it becomes an essential space for arts and entertainment for the University, the City of Orange and the Orange County.


    The Dean of the College of Performing Arts serves as the College's leader and advocate. The Dean will be a gifted academic leader and outstanding administrator who inspires the College to grow and excel and play an even more vital role within Chapman University, in the region, and across the nation. The Dean also ensures that CoPA graduates are prepared for meaningful careers upon graduation from Chapman University. Reporting to the Chancellor, the Dean will serve as a key member of the University's senior academic leadership team. Drawing upon the talents of the faculty and existing partnerships within the University, the Dean will lead the CoPA toward greater collaboration and seek creative ways to enhance excellence. To help propel the college toward reaching these goals, the Dean will address several opportunities and challenges:


    * Unite CoPA around a common vision and purpose and a new level of national distinction;
    * Realize the promise of the Musco Center as an educational venue;
    * Develop partnerships and innovative academic programs that distinguish CoPA;
    * Champion excellence, innovation and creativity in scholarship, academics and performance;
    * Raise the visibility, reputation and external support for CoPA and Chapman University.
