The Hartford Art School is maintained by approximately 20 staff members with various skills and experience related to the visual arts and design. Open positions are posted as needed on the Human Resources Development (HRD) website. Applications are vetted by a hiring manager. All staff positions are considered “at will” at the University of Hartford.

Long-term faculty positions are filled through a rigorous search process through a faculty-led committee that determines the requirements, receives the applications, and conducts interviews and campus visits. Open positions are posted on the HRD website as well as in appropriate discipline specific publications. The search process can take up to six months to a year to complete.

Adjunct faculty positions (part time) are also posted on the HRD website as needed. A department chair, associate dean, or dean of the college typically manages the process. The Hartford Art School welcomes resumes and letters of intent from interested artists/teachers to keep on file for future reference and needs. In most cases a MFA degree is considered the minimum credential. Please submit your materials to the HAS Dean’s Office for distribution to the appropriate department.
