Past ART DEPARTMENT SERVICE
Ongoing
Coordinate student volunteers to assist in studio.
Because of restricted departmental resources and demands on technical staff time, I perform most of the physical and technical activities required to operate a functioning ceramics studio.
This averages between ten and thirty hours per week in addition to my regular faculty responsibilities. (Use of student help has been helpful, but is restricted because of liability considerations and because mistakes can have a severe effect on other students’ work.)
  • Departmental RTP Committee, 2007-2008, 2010- Jennifer Roberson
  • Tenure Track Search Committee, Spring 2007
  • Chair Part Time Hiring Committee, 2005
  • Decal Workshop ArtS 498, fall '05, taught as an academic overload.
  • Kiln Firing Workshop to students with an emphasis in ceramics. This course was offered again in the spring of 2004 after the new kilns were installed and fully operational. (These courses were taught as an academic overload with no compensation).
  • I helped to arrange a $60,000 donation from Deborah Hatfield, BA’03, to the Art Department. This gift has brought the ceramics studio from 1960's to 2003 technology with the installation of three new large kilns. This allows students to create work that could not be done with the previous equipment. I was instrumental in determining the effective use of these funds. I then directed the removal of old equipment and the installation of new equipment over the summer and winter breaks of 2003.
  • Kiln Firing Workshop, ArtS 498 fall, 03 to students with an emphasis in ceramics.
  • Initiated a student exhibition of ceramic, OUTCAST, attended by students, faculty and guests, held at the end of Spring '03 in the ceramics studio.
  • Represented SSU at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference (NCECA) in San Diego, CA
  • Part-time faculty hiring committee, the committee consisted of Jann Nunn (committee Chair) Jennifer Shaw and myself to review and interview artists and art historians, and created a lecturer pool to be utilized by the department for future part-time faculty. 2002
  • Coordinator of Visiting Artist; Internationally recognized artist Hedi Ernst was a visiting artist in the ceramics area in the fall of 2002 and in the spring of 2003 in preparation for her residency and subsequent installation at the Paradises Ridge Sculpture Garden. In exchange she gave slide lectures throughout the semester and made herself available to all interested students on drop-in bases.
  • Faculty advisor to the Creative Collective, 2002
  • Gifts: Arranged for the donation of a large equipment gift to the Art Department of a computer-controlled kiln from Hedi Ernst. 2002
  • 2001 Curriculum changes; wrote and implemented three new classes for the 2002-2004 SSU Course Catalog, Large Scale Clay and Installation, Form and Function and Ceramic Materials. These courses were added to bring a wider breadth of knowledge to the SSU ceramics students.
