The Boston Conservatory seeks applications and nominations for the academic and artistic leadership of its Music Division. The Dean will be a dynamic and visionary leader who is prepared to develop an active and expanding music curriculum while honoring the principles and values of a high-quality conservatory learning experience.
The recently announced merger of the Boston Conservatory and Berklee is intended to create the world’s most comprehensive institution for the study of performing arts and related professions, and represents a unique opportunity for the new Dean. The 2016-17 academic year is envisioned as a transition year, in which post-merger integration of administrative and academic functions will be designed and executed. While the Boston Conservatory will exist as a discrete collegiate unit within the larger Berklee universe (becoming The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and continuing to operate its historic conservatory-level programs in theater, dance, and music), there is great and growing excitement about exploring both new program development and curricular and collaborative opportunities that will allow the institution to pioneer new models of professional music training. The Dean of the Music Division is expected to take a leadership role in guiding these crucial conversations and the evolution that will follow.
The Dean will lead a music faculty composed of distinguished professionals, frequently augmented by nationally known guest artist/teachers. S/he will work closely with the Chief Academic Officer of the Conservatory to promote the goals of the Conservatory and the Music Division, and will collaborate closely with the Deans of the other Conservatory programs in Dance and Theater around institutional initiatives. S/he will also work closely with the Provost and other Deans at Berklee to develop the curricular and co-curricular experiences that will enable qualified students to take best advantage of the unique multi-disciplinary environment created by the merger. Additional Information about the merger can be found at https://www.berklee.edu/berklee-boston-conservatory.
