Faculty and Staff

Each of your instructors is an accomplished professional in his/her field. We have a permanent core of faculty which is augmented by part time instructors. We are here to inspire and direct your education. Take advantage of our expertise and excitement about our own learning. A faculty member will be assigned as your advisor, but you may change advisors by having a new advisor within the department notify the Administrative Coordinator and noting it on the jacket of your advisee folder. Faculty members are available to you during regularly scheduled office hours, often before and after class, and by appointment. It is extremely important that you initiate contact with your advisor early in your first semester here and on a regular basis thereafter. In some cases, specific faculty members are able to offer specialized advising for General Education or Major Requirements. Their expertise will be noted in their biographical statements. In all cases, the Art Studio or Art History coordinators should be consulted for questions of interpretation or substitution of course work from other institutions. The Department Chair is responsible for final approval of all substitutions and graduation requirement petitions for the major.
