California College of the Arts seeks applicants for an open rank (assistant, associate, or full professor commensurate with experience), full-time faculty position to chair the MDes in Interaction Design program beginning in August 2023.
In keeping with CCA’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, we seek candidates with a demonstrated ability to cultivate an equity-focused creative and scholarly environment. As we expand the curriculum to fully include the histories, experiences, and methods of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and LGBTQ+ designers, we will look to our next program chair to lead this work.
The chair is responsible for the vision, leadership, and administration of the MDes in Interaction Design program with support from an associate chair and divisional staff. The chair ensures program relevance, educational excellence, and ongoing successful operations. Responsibilities include planning, oversight, and management of the program’s curriculum, budget, and initiatives; direct supervision of the faculty involved in graduate admissions and reviews; organizational leadership for faculty, students, and staff; and faculty recruitment, retention, and development. The chair is responsible for staying actively involved with both the curriculum and relevant professional fields.
