About Cornish

The Cornish Leadership Team

When The Cornish School opened its doors in 1914, it was the result of the tenacious and inspired efforts of a singular woman -- Nellie Centennial Cornish. Now, as it moves into its second century, Cornish College of the Arts requires an equally tenacious and inspired team of leaders to guide it. From the president and the provost to the chairs of the academic departments and the board of directors, these dedicated professionals shape Cornish College with their experience, expertise and passion for exceptional contemporary arts education.
