Dorothée Imbert Named to Provost’s Council on the Arts
The Knowlton School is pleased to announce that Director Dorothée Imbert has been named to Ohio State’s Provost’s Council on the Arts. Imbert joins select faculty leaders and executives from across campus in an advisory role to Vice Provost for the Arts Lisa Florman.
The Provost’s Council on the Arts will advise the Office of Academic Affairs on arts-related matters, especially those that involve multiple colleges or university entities; serve as a sounding board for new arts initiatives and help prioritize among them; and strategize with Vice Provost for the Arts Lisa Florman on how the arts might be better integrated into the curriculum, raised to greater visibility across our multiple campuses, and become a cornerstone of our engagement with communities in Columbus and throughout Ohio.
Along with the recently founded Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, the Provost’s Council on the Arts is an important element in the university’s ongoing effort to develop a distinct and significant voice for the arts at Ohio State, and to use that voice in local, national and international conversations to enhance the university’s reputation and advance its Academic Plan.
