Personal Statement

Dr. Thomas Linehan is currently the director of the Institute for Interactive Arts and Engineering at UT Dallas. "UTD students are the smartest I've taught," he says. "Most of them write very well, so it gives me great hope that the stories of the future will come out of this generation. They've got good, fresh ideas. This university is a university for this century."

He has a background in both corporate management and educational administration. He has served as a college president, a corporate vice president, an associate dean, a research laboratory director, a professor and a public school teacher.

Most recently, he served as the president of The Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. There he directed successful ventures in: selective enrollment increases, consensus-based strategic planning, faculty governance reform, housing and instructional facilities construction, increased corporate collaboration, improved faculty/staff/student morale and the directed the best financial performance in the college's history.

As senior vice president of CRSS Architects, a world-wide design firm (400 architects and 15 offices), he managed a number of major corporate units and implemented CRSS' early entrance into advanced computer-based design and computer visualization. Dr. Linehan has experience in research and educational planning with the arts and technology.

He has developed several premiere degree programs in media arts technology. (Ohio State University's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design, Texas A&M University's Visualization Laboratory and The Ringling School of Art and Design's Computer Animation Program.)

Each of these programs provides an advanced computing environment in support of an industry-relevant education. Dr. Linehan has served as a consultant in the development of similar programs in The Netherlands, Germany, New Zealand and Canada.
