    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Dixie State University announced the appointment of Dr. Jeffrey W. Jarvis as the institution’s new Dean of the School of Visual & Performing Arts. Jarvis, who assumed his new duties earlier this month, replaced longtime theatre faculty member, department chair and dean Dr. Brent Hanson, who retired July after more than 30 years of service to Dixie State.

    Jarvis comes to DSU from the University of Central Arkansas, where he was chair of the music department and associate professor of music for nine years. He also served as president of the Arkansas Association of Schools of Music.

    Prior to his time at UCA, Jarvis was a member of the music faculty at East Carolina University, where he taught tuba and euphonium, and chaired the ECU Department of Instrumental Studies. He also served as managing director of the North Carolina Suzuki Institute, and as an administrator with the DePaul University Music Management Workshop, the East Carolina Leadership Academy, and the University of North Carolina Workshop for Department Chairs.

    “I’m excited to join the Visual & Performing Arts team here at Dixie State,” Dr. Jarvis said. “I’m looking forward to working with this talented, experienced faculty and staff to strengthen and grow DSU’s arts programs."

    Jarvis holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music from Baylor University and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Michigan State University. He has performed extensively with the North Carolina Symphony, and performed concertos and recitals throughout the Southeast and Midwest.
