Passion and Professionalism: The Arts in Higher Education

 Guest Speaker
Robert Bucker
Dean of the School of the Arts
Portland State University 

One of the most experienced American leaders in the arts in higher education, Robert Bucker has been a keen observer of large-scale changes in pre-professional arts education. We have asked Bob to talk to us about what drew him to Portland State, and about the trends in higher education he finds most promising and most troubling.


He's also been involved in efforts to bring serious engagement with the arts to students from many non-arts disciplines. At California State University, Northridge, he was responsible not only for a major university's school of the arts, but also for the creation of a large and handsomely designed center for the performing arts. 

Robert Bucker, who has 40 years of experience in fine and performing arts, is currently Dean of the College of the Arts at Portland State University, overseeing a college that includes the School of Architecture, School of Art and Design, School of Music, and School of Theatre and Film.  From 2007 – 2013 Bucker was Dean of the Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication at California State University, Northridge, where he also served as the Executive Director of the new, state-of-the-art Valley Performing Arts Center. 

Bucker began his career as a middle school and high school vocal music teacher and choral director in Missouri. He served as the director of education for the Metropolitan Opera Guild and the voice chairman and choral conductor for the Presidential Scholars in the Arts program, founded by the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.  He developed a semester-long New York residency program, “Leadership and the Arts in New York,” with the faculty of the Hart Leadership Program at Duke University, serving as its Associate Director and teaching courses for a number of years.  Later he was the dean of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Peck School of the Arts, and dean of the School of Fine Arts at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.  Dr. Bucker earned his DMA in conducting at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, in 1991, having studied with Robert Shaw, Marcel Coureau, and Wilhelm Ehman.  He previously earned a Master’s degree in music from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and a Bachelor’s degree in education in 1971 from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM Paying for the Gowanus Canal Clean-up

About the Program

The Gowanus Canal, a nearly two mile body of water in Brooklyn, is one of the most polluted sites in New York City.  In 2010 the Canal was placed on the EPA’s Superfund Priorities List. With this designation, the EPA can compel parties responsible for the pollution to pay for the Canal’s cleanup.  Holding the appropriate parties responsible, however, is not a simple matter.

The Canal has been the entryway for contaminants almost continuously since the nineteenth century.  Determining which entities – factories, shippers, New York City itself – caused harm and determining their proportion of liability is almost impossible decades after the event.  Indeed, many of the original polluters are companies that no longer exist. Nonetheless, the EPA is in the process of identifying “potentially responsible parties” and is prepared to bring legal action to force them to pay their share of the cleanup.

The EPA’s actions raise a number of compelling legal, ethical and policy issues regarding our approach to the restoration of polluted public areas.  On May 8th Baruch College’s Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity and Steven L. Newman Real Estate Institute, in partnership with the Sustainability Practice Network, will convene a panel to address the question of who should pay for the Gowanus Canal cleanup.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC -- registration is suggested , but walk-ins are welcome.
