California College of the Arts
The mission of Academic Affairs is to support faculty and academic staff in their efforts to educate students to shape culture through the practice and critical study of art, design, architecture, and writing. The academic administration is dedicated to improving educational resources across the college and working closely with faculty, program chairs, instructional support areas, and the Student Affairs staff to enhance student learning.
Academic Affairs is composed of a central leadership office and four academic divisions: Architecture, Design, Fine Arts, and Humanities & Sciences. The staff in each division work collaboratively to address operational and curricular challenges that impact Academic Affairs administration.
The APPM works closely with the academic deans and the Office of Advancement to facilitate and support the fundraising, partnerships, and sponsored projects from initial conception through completion and final reporting. These projects aim to enhance the curricular and professional experience of our students and faculty, further establishing CCA as a global leader of art and design education. The APPM serves as a key liaison between academic and administrative departments at the college and collaborates with other college partners to ensure the success of our internal and external partnerships and dean initiatives. The APPM serves as an institutional ambassador when interfacing with external partners and donors, bringing a level of professionalism to all interactions that is aligned with the college's mission, culture, and values.
The APPM will manage key donor projects and dean initiatives for the Fine Arts and Humanities & Sciences divisions. Project management responsibilities include the coordination and completion of projects and partnerships on time within budget and within scope. The APPM oversees all aspects of projects, including: setting deadlines, budget planning, research assistance, scheduling meetings & travel, event planning & management, developing social media campaigns, and monitoring/summarizing progress of projects. The APPM regularly prepares reports for supervisor, deans, and/or Office of Advancement regarding status of projects.
The APPM works directly with deans, the Office of Advancement, external college partners, and other key stakeholders to ensure deliverables fall within the applicable scope and budget and that the terms of funding/partnership agreements are satisfied. He or she will coordinate with internal departments to ensure all aspects of each project are compatible and will hire and supervise work study students as needed to assist with project and event needs. The APPM may also work with faculty and students to coordinate curricular operations and events connected to these initiatives by providing targeted administrative support.
