Barrett Hipes is nearing two decades at The Juilliard School as an administrator, faculty member, and creator of new curricula and programs to equip young artists for career success, pedagogical aptitudes, and impactful citizenship. Dr. Hipes currently serves as Vice Provost and Dean of Student Development, which encompasses the areas of Student Affairs, Residence Life, International Advisement and Student Diversity Initiatives, Academic Support and Disability Services, Community Engagement, Career Services, and Health and Counseling Services. Since 2015, he has overseen the creation and ongoing work of the Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services and Entrepreneurship, including the development of Juilliard’s Career, Project, and Entrepreneurship grants, and post-graduate career advancement grants and fellowships. Dr. Hipes launched Juilliard Thrives in 2019, helping to provide free, accessible, and convenient opportunities encouraging students to regularly direct their focus toward self-care and mental health. He also helped to shape and has overseen the first Office of Academic Support and Disability Services since its inception. In 2020, Dr. Hipes had the opportunity to conceptualize and work with architects, engineers, Lincoln Center, and Juilliard’s department of facilities to reconfigure and modernize the Meredith Willson Residence Hall. The multi-year renovation was completed in 2023. As a relatively new staff member at Juilliard, in 2008, Dr. Hipes created the Diversity Advocates program in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs, which has grown exponentially to include an expanding roster of student leaders and an ongoing series of educational programs and student-driven initiatives, now under the auspices of the Office of International Advisement and Student Diversity Initiatives. In addition to Juilliard, Dr. Hipes has served on the faculties of St. John’s University and Rutgers University. He holds degrees from the University of Arkansas (BM), Rutgers University (MM), and the City University of New York (DMA), with emphases in music education, as well as percussion and saxophone performance.
