Baruch Performing Art Center convenes a conversation of diverse voices across arts disciplines.

It accomplishes this by presenting theater, music, dance, film, & talk which inform through relevant content and engage through singular experiences, enriching the appreciation of students, faculty and alumni for culture in its broadest sense, while serving as an affordable resource for all New Yorkers.

BPAC will be a means by which the larger public can understand the fruits of its faculty’s broad range of intellectual inquiry, engage in issues of civic relevance, and experience the richness of culture that is the hallmark of New York City. It will make Baruch a concrete destination offering them value and reward through their understanding and experiencing of the arts, sciences, and humanities. In building ties between the college and the outside world, it will provide students means to engage, learn, and immerse themselves beyond the classroom.

The Managing Director is instrumental in developing, implementing and maintaining PAC policies as they intersect with college policies, reviewing and executing contracts and other day-to-day business. The Managing Director oversees full-time and part-time staff. The ideal candidate will be dedicated, energetic, and passionate performing arts administrator who practices diversity, equity and inclusion in all aspects of administration and programming.
