Rose Ginther

MacEwan University
Associate Dean, Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Rose holds a BA in History from the University of Alberta (1984) and an MA with a focus on work, organization and leadership (2010) from Athabasca University.

Building on her graduate studies, research areas of interest include the ways in which organizations in the cultural sector organize themselves to fulfill their missions, issues and trends related to audience and resource development and the rapidly changing landscape within which arts and cultural organizations work and their ability to adapt to and embrace those changes. Rose is also interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning, including the influence of program-level learning outcomes as contributors to student success and the importance of experiential learning in preparing individuals for the complex, dynamic arts and cultural field.

Her most recent research initiative involves an interdisciplinary collaboration with Paul Johnston (Assistant Professor, Department of Music), students and alumni in the development of a MacEwan Record Label – Bent River Records (BRR). The label enables artists to access recording and promotional assistance in exchange for providing learning opportunities for students. This exchange builds capacity in the sector, with graduates who are more fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
