Scheri Fultineer Will Be the Next Leader of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University

Scheri Fultineer has been appointed dean of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, effective in January. She will also be a professor of the practice at the school.

“Together SMFA and the university offer an intellectually and creatively rich community with multiple resources, multiple ways of looking at the world, and multiple knowledge sets,” says Fultineer. “They can be extremely powerful when they work together. The students and faculty at the school have so much to offer, and so many different talents and abilities to focus on today’s issues. Having a strong and vital engagement with the larger student body and faculty will be beneficial to everyone. I’m looking forward to doing everything I can to create that sense of active community.”

Fultineer recently served as dean of the Division of Architecture and Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. She also held the roles of interim associate provost of research and was a department head. Earlier, she taught for more than a decade at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She is the founding principal of Reisen Design Associates, where she practiced for almost 20 years. Fultineer’s research — much of it funded by the National Science Foundation — has examined the challenge of incorporating sustainability into our landscapes.

Fultineer is a graduate of Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. She holds a master’s degree in landscape architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a master’s degree in theological studies from Harvard Divinity School.
