Vice President for the Arts

Dean, Fine Arts

Professor, Art

Music Bldg, Room 111

Andrew Schulz joined the University of Arizona as Dean of the College of Fine Arts in July 2018. In January 2019, he was named the inaugural Vice President for the Arts and charged with carrying out the reimagined vision for the arts at the University of Arizona, as defined in the university’s strategic plan. 

As Vice President for the Arts, Schulz leads Arizona Arts, a division that provides a unified gateway to the extraordinary arts assets, experiences, and academic programs at the university. Arizona Arts brings together the highly regarded academic programs in the College of Fine Arts—the schools of dance; art; music; and theatre, film and television—together with the university’s world-class arts presenting and engagement units, including the Center for Creative Photography, the UA Museum of Art, Arizona Arts Live (formerly UA Presents), and Arizona Arts in Schools K-12 programs. 

Schulz is an award-winning teacher and one of the foremost scholars on 18th- and 19th-century Spanish art. His award-winning research has examined the role of visual culture in the construction of national and imperial identity, specifically in the Age of Enlightenment and the Romantic era. For the past several years he has been exploring the "afterlife" of Islamic culture in Spain. 

Prior to his appointment at Arizona, Schulz held administrative and tenured faculty appointments at the Pennsylvania State University, the University of Oregon, and Seattle University. On the national level, Schulz has been a leader in the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities and in the College Art Association.

We asked The University of Arizona School of Dance alumna Erina Ueda (BFA ‘21, Dance) ...

What have you been up to?

I’m currently a professional dancer with the Giordano Dance Chicago, America’s original jazz dance company in Chicago, Illinois. It has been a magical experience so far being a part of their legacy, representing as their first Asian dancer, performing at Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Harris Theater and the Auditorium Theatre, and touring around the state & country. This spring, I was invited to be interviewed by the Consultant General of Japan in Chicago.

Not only I work as a professional dancer, but I work as a social media consultant and a videographer for the GDC. I also teach dance classes: ballet, jazz, tap and acrobat, at many different studios in the city, as well as being invited to teach at summer intensives and master classes from other states.

It has been a whole new world, a dream come true, and I cannot wait to continue learning and growing, become stronger, and perform with the incredible Giordano Dance Chicago, who I call my family, as we enter our 60th season!

It is such an honor to be recognized by you. Thank you so much for reaching out; I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the experience I had at UofA ❤️💙

Here's Assistant Professor of Practice Darnell T. Roulhac in his "The Room Where it Happens: Guide to Auditioning Successfully" workshop at the International Thespian Festival 2022!

"The Room Where it Happens" is a masterclass-style workshop to better prepare young singers as they are auditioning for schools and shows. Participants get tips on how to pick impactful songs as well as how to get the attention of the panel one's performing for. They will also discuss 32-bar cuts and what else one should have prepared.

Hosted at Indiana University, the festival is a celebration of school theatre and gathers thespians from around the globe for performances, workshops, and college auditions!
