The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) seeks a Department Head for its MFA in Collaborative Design and MA in Design Systems programs.
The Collaborative Design and Design Systems programs produce creative leaders who apply a systems mindset and a toolkit of design, analytical, and entrepreneurial skills to drive positive impact in private, public, and non-profit sectors.
The successful candidate will bring a compelling vision of how design thinking, facilitation skills, systems based thinking, a human-centered approach, and a background in interactive or experiential design can prepare students for a future in design. This candidate will also be able to show how these approaches can amplify a background in interactive or experiential design to inform and shape both the private and public sectors. The candidate will have strong
connections to national and international creative communities, practice, and resources, and the desire to create an internationally competitive program. The Candidate will also be charged with
the development of another graduate-level design program built off the current infrastructure of the CD/DS programs.
