Scott Lindroth’s 13-year tenure as Duke’s first vice provost for the arts will soon conclude. When he started the job, he already had 17 years of faculty experience behind him including a stint as a department chair, so he knew his arts colleagues needed more faculty lines, teaching assistants, equipment, teaching space and other core needs.
But he quickly realized his role would be far more broad. Looking back now, Lindroth reflects on the many relationships, partnerships and commitments needed to elevate the arts on campus — via investment in myriad ways.
