PFM Executive Search is excited to announce the appointment of Tiffanie Ting as the new Executive Director of Continuing Studies for Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECU)! She will commence her employment on Monday, July 6th, 2020.

In this role, Tiffanie will be providing leadership and strategic direction for all of ECU’s Continuing Studies programs, partnerships and outreach initiatives. She will be working closely with staff, faculty and the entire Academic Affairs team as they broaden their outreach and programming in lielong learning initiatives.

Tiffanie joins ECU with a record of outstanding academic, pedagogical and research achievement. She most recently served as Dean of Cabot House and Lecturer on Sociology at Harvard University, and has worked in art museums in both Canada and the U.S., focusing on art education and community engagement.

Tiffanie has a doctorate in Culture, Communities and Education from Harvard, as well as previous degrees in education (Master of Education, Harvard), and art history and psychology (Bachelor of Arts, University of Toronto).

Her academic interests include issues of identity and learning in cultural institutions; qualitative research design; the sociology of education; and the sociology of art. Most recently, Tiffanie’s work has centred around investigating students’ narratives of academic decision-making and sense of purpose in the context of a liberal arts education.
