Lacey Baradel, the Allan and Mary Kollar Endowed Fellow in American Art and an Acting Assistant Professor beginning in autumn 2017, departed after spring quarter 2019. The School has begun the search for a tenure-track faculty member to fill the Kollar Endowed Chair in American Art. The application deadline is October 9.
Violetta Walker served as the School's Administrator from summer 2018 through summer 2019. We are currently interviewing finalists for this position.
Annie Pearson worked in the School for over seven years. When she departed in mid-summer for a new position, her title was Administrative Services Coordinator, which covered a wide range of duties. Ruth Kazmerzak, an alum and our half-time Fiscal Specialist, applied for Pearson's former position and was selected. Their knowledge of the School has allowed them to quickly take on the new assignment. We hope to have a new Fiscal Specialist on board soon.
