Chief Objective of Position

Supported by the Andrew W. Ross Visiting Artist Legacy Fund, the Department of Art's artist-in-residence program invites one artist, scholar, or educator to campus each year. The program culminates with an exhibition at the Radford University Art Museum; a research lecture; and/or an educational program in the spring semester. Candidates at any career stage that work in any relevant media or discipline are welcome to apply.

Funding is provided to support housing and living costs. For regionally- located candidates, it is possible to commute, but relocation is preferred to meet the expectations of the program. To supplement the stipend, candidates may elect to teach in the department as adjunct, pending availability. Adjunct faculty supplement the full-time faculty by teaching courses which are necessary for the department but for which instructors may be lacking. The goal of adjunct positions is to facilitate our ability to meet the growing needs of the department in this area.
