This unique position is fundamental to two academic units, requiring the successful candidate to effectively collaborate with two faculty bodies, and to bridge the curricula and cultures of both.  The position requires teaching three courses each semester focused on introduction to on-camera acting, advanced on-camera acting and acting for film directors.  We seek an artist/educator with a commitment to enhancing each program’s national distinction and nurturing the next generation of artists.  The successful candidate will learn and become immersed in the culture, ethos and inner workings of each of the units and become an inextricable bond between them.
