Yale University — Dean of the School of Music

Robert Blocker, who led the school during nearly three decades as the Henry and Lucy Moses Dean, will retire from the position on August 31, 2023


The School of Music at Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut, is seeking to appoint a new Dean. Based in New Haven, Connecticut, the school is one of the most sought-after institutions for classical music in the world.

The successful candidate will be appointed by the president of the college and will report to its provost. The applicant must be capable of visionary leadership and must possess the collaborative skills to coordinate the school's highly skilled and dedicated faculty.

While the Yale School of Music has a strong focus on high-level performance music, it also sits within a world-class research university. As such, the successful applicant will be required to work with fellow professional school deans, vice presidents, and other academic administrators on campus as part of the University Cabinet.

In addition, the candidate will be responsible for conceiving, setting, and enacting the School's strategic plans.

Applicants should be accomplished musicians, skilled administrators, and have a strong commitment to the role of the arts in society. Prior organizational leadership experience is crucial.

Applications can be made via the Isaacson Miller portal.
