After 10 years and two terms as chairperson of Michigan State University’s Department of Theatre, Professor Kirk Domer is returning to the faculty. His time as Chairperson, he says, has been defined by three words: renovation, innovation and compassion. He has built a reputation of leading from a place of compassionate and collaborative risk taking, using the art of theater to serve as a civilizing agent in society.
He summed up his tenure as chairperson by saying, “My goal has been to move forward with theatre and the performing arts through a continuous renovation of my creative practice, the curricular and professional opportunities afforded my students and attention to the development of department faculty and staff for whom I care so deeply.”
