VIEW JOBS 11/30/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-02-28T00:00 Position Details Position Information Title Executive Director, UA Presents Department UA Presents (7301) Location Main Campus Position Summary UA Presents is the preeminent presenter of the performing arts in southern Arizona and one of the University of Arizona's most valued and visible assets. As an organization that serves the university community, audiences throughout southern Arizona, and public schools across the region, UA Presents (UAP) has a reach and impact that extends far beyond the university campus. Founded in 1885, the University of Arizona was the first university in the Arizona Territory. Believing the study of the fine arts to be an essential part of higher education, the University initiated music instruction and performance opportunities for students in 1891. The UA School of Music was formally organized in 1926 and with it came the groundwork for a public performance presenting series, which grew in stature in the coming decades, bolstered by the opening of Main Auditorium in 1937. Main Auditorium, a 2,500-seat performance hall, was renamed Centennial Hall in honor of the University's 100th birthday in 1985. Centennial Hall remains the home of UA Presents today and continues to serve Tucsonans and University students alike. Since 2011, UA Presents has been a vital part of the College of Fine Arts. UA Presents currently offers approximately 80 performances a year in series that includes classical, jazz, dance, family programming, and Broadway in Tucson. UA Presents serves as a rental home to another 40 events a year. In all, Centennial Hall welcomes more than 150,000 patrons annually from across southern Arizona. The 2018/19 season features Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Temptations & The Four Tops, and The Royal Scottish National Orchestra, to name only a few. UA Presents also serves multiple communities as the manager of Centennial Hall and its various rental performances. Additional performances take place throughout Tucson and the University of Arizona campus. Broadway in Tucson, part of the Nederlander Organization, moved from downtown Tucson to Centennial Hall in 2013 and is now UA Presents' largest rental client, welcoming approximately 100,000 patrons annually. In 2015, Broadway in Tucson became a contracted management company, contributing both shared resources and leadership staff to UA Presents and the College of Fine Arts. The 2018/19 Broadway series includes the national Broadway tours of Waitress, Something Rotten!, Fiddler on the Roof, Cats, and Les Misérables. UA Presents maintains a commitment to arts education in southern Arizona's school systems through a number of innovative programs that serve more than 5,000 K-12 students annually. UA Presents' educational programming includes in-school and bus-in productions in support of the College of Fine Arts' CFA in Schools program which is committed to bringing the arts to southern Arizona's student populations, currently reaching more than 35,000 students annually. Additional educational and outreach programs include Lead Guitar (a unique and privately supported program), UpBeat, which focuses on percussion instruction, Step Up which focuses on dance, and Music First, a K-2 early music fundamentals program. Guest artists visiting UA Presents participate in a number of additional significant programs, including CFA in Schools, Artists on Campus and Beyond, and Behind the Scenes. Other cross-campus collaboration opportunities include a Majors to Majors ticket offering for students, as well as direct engagement with other colleges. The University of Arizona enrolls approximately 45,000 students a year in 19 separate colleges or schools. UA Presents' current annual operating budget is more than $6M. In April of 2018, the University of Arizona was proud to be among an elite handful of Research I institutions to be designated a "Hispanic Serving Institution" by the U.S. Department of Education. The next Executive Director will join a vital organization with a strong, dedicated staff at an exciting moment of change. Under the guidance of the Dean, the new Executive Director will have the opportunity to set the vision and direction of UA Presents for the next decade and beyond. As part of the College of Fine Arts Leadership Team, the next Executive Director will collaborate closely with other members of the senior staff, the newly-appointed Dean of the College and other University leadership to develop and execute a cohesive vision for the organization. The Executive Director of UA Presents will enjoy the opportunity to partner with the Nederlander Organization in a relationship unique to university presenters. The next Executive Director will find Tucson a culturally rich home in southern Arizona's beautiful Sonoran Desert. Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
