Anne Shulock named assistant vice president for the arts

Anne Shulock, chief of staff in the Office of the President of the San Francisco Art Institute, has been appointed the assistant vice president for the arts at Stanford University.

As the assistant vice president for the arts, Shulock will help to further implement a cohesive 21st-century vision for the arts at Stanford. Reporting to Harry Elam Jr., vice president for the arts (VPA), she will be responsible for evaluating the portfolio of non-academic arts offerings on campus (Anderson Collection, Cantor Arts Center, Stanford Live/Bing Concert Hall, Stanford Arts Institute and the Institute for Diversity in the Arts), coordinating efforts across units, and operationalizing a strategy for future creative and artistic endeavors at Stanford. She will also provide crucial support to the VPA in further articulating the scope of and implementing the priorities and goals of the arts at Stanford, and fostering collaboration across the University’s non-departmental arts programs.

Shulock is an experienced arts administrator dedicated to serving students, artists, educators and audiences. For nearly nine years, she has worked at the San Francisco Art Institute, an influential art college with a legacy of experimentation and innovation. As chief of staff in the Office of the President, Shulock helped the senior leadership team and Board of Trustees coordinate and successfully drive institutional initiatives, including the 2017 opening of SFAI’s graduate campus within the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Prior to becoming chief of staff, she served as senior assistant to the president for strategic planning and communications and held several key roles within SFAI’s marketing department.

Shulock is also a contributing editor for Art Practical, a publishing platform that enriches critical dialogue for the visual arts with an emphasis on amplifying diverse voices and underrepresented perspectives. Her first day on campus will be Sept. 16, 2019.
