Anedith Nash, Ph.D., is retiring as CCAD’s provost after more than a decade of successful and sensitive leadership.
Dr. Nash joined CCAD in 2000 and has participated in the leadership of several important initiatives, including a five-year project to implement policies, procedures, and staffing for a campus-wide student data system, culminating in a “one-stop shop” for student services in a newly designed facility. Her leadership, in consultation with the president, deans and faculty, led the college to an academic plan for 2003-13, which has, in large part, been completed.
“As I think back to the beginning of her tenure here, and reflect on the transformational changes she has orchestrated, I am inspired by the splendid amount of growth, refinement, and improvement she has overseen,” said CCAD President Denny Griffith. “She has been my partner and collaborator for over 10 years, and while I hate to lose her she leaves with the love and warmest wishes from me and everyone in the CCAD family.”
Some of the significant changes that have taken place during Dr. Nash’s tenure include curricular development, planning and implementation of one-stop student services and student affairs departments, sabbaticals and other development opportunities for faculty, expansion of technology in the academic programs, expanded exhibitions programs, and the first graduate program at the college–an MFA in Visual Arts which opened Fall 2010.
Prior to coming to CCAD, Dr. Nash was academic dean at Oregon College of Art & Craft. She previously held administrative and faculty positions at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Hamline University and Macalester College.
