Mar 13, 2014

The National Guild is pleased to welcome Sarah Bainter Cunningham, executive director of research at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts (VCUArts), as the newest member of our board of trustees.

Cunningham will offer a high degree of leadership, experience, and expertise that will greatly support the Guild's efforts to support and advance access to lifelong learning opportunities in the arts. In addition to her work at VCUArts, Cunningham also serves on the National Advisory Board of the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project and serves on the executive committee of the Alliance for Arts in Research Universities, an effort of more than 30 institutions nationwide. Prior to VCUArts, Dr. Cunningham was the director for arts education at the National Endowment for the Arts, providing national leadership in all artistic disciplines. In 2007, Cunningham founded the Education Leaders Institute, a design workshop to place arts at the core of public education, attracting a funding partnership with the Dana Foundation. 

Her academic expertise includes aesthetics, political philosophy, ethics, and media. Cunningham received an M.A. and Ph.D in philosophy from Vanderbilt University.
