Scheri Fultineer

Tufts University

We were delighted to partner with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University to identify its next Dean.

Our work resulted in the recruitment of Scheri Fultineer to the role. Fultineer will assume the role in January 2023.

Fultineer is a professor of landscape architecture who previously served as the Dean of the Division of Architecture and Design at the Rhode Island School of Design.

She was also a founding Principal of a multidisciplinary architecture firm, Reisen Design Associates.

Fultineer’s prior work examines sustainability, ecology and their relationship to human life. Her art and research consider how cultural practices, such as burial structures, interact with the landscapes used to place the dead. Additionally, she has taught classes on the future of dams, issues in coastal parks and shellfish habitats.

Fultineer received a Bachelor of Arts from Antioch College. She earned a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where she then taught for over a decade. She also holds a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School.
