Dear CA Community,

I am delighted to share the news with you that Justin Bull has agreed to serve as CA’s interim dean of faculty for the 2021–22 school year. The interview committee appreciated Justin’s desire to enhance communication, his interest in bringing forward conversations around teaching and pedagogy for the year ahead, and his deep experience as a teacher, department head, coach, mentor, advisor, and house faculty member.

Justin has been a member of the CA faculty since 2008 and served for six years as the Visual Arts Department head. Known for his innovative, creative, and collaborative approach, Justin has taught in numerous departments during his time at CA, developing and co-developing many courses, including the first cross-discipline course supported by Department X, an initiative of the Faculty Endowed Leadership Fund. We are excited for the interdisciplinary eye he will bring to his role next year. Justin holds a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology and an MFA from the American Film Institute. In addition to the award-winning films he creates with CA students, he is an award-winning filmmaker and screenwriter in his own right. Soon to be a CA parent as well, Justin lives in Bradford House with his wife, Tracy, and their three children, Oswyn, Alfred, and Maisy, who will join CA’s class of 2025 next year.

I am grateful to all who volunteered and participated in this process, and my thanks to the interview committee of Annie Falk, Rob Munro, Marie Myers, Monica Ripley, Ben Stumpf, and Laura Twichell for all of their time and partnership.

Please join me in thanking and congratulating Justin Bull for serving as CA’s interim dean of faculty next year.
