California College of the Arts (CCA), in San Francisco, has appointed two new deans: Allison Smith as dean of fine arts and Tina Takemoto as dean of humanities and sciences.

Smith previously served as the chair of CCA’s sculpture program, and Takemoto worked as chair of the appointments, promotions, and tenure committee. They will begin in their new roles in August, in conjunction with an expansion of the college’s graduate program in curatorial practice. A larger expansion by way of a campus redesign is planned for the 2021-2022 academic year.
