PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Brown University is adding a vice provost for the arts as part of an effort to expand the school’s focus in the area.

The school announced Friday Michael Steinberg has been appointed to the newly created position and will begin in January. He will remain in his current role as director of the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown through June 30. The vice provost for arts will serve as a member of the president’s cabinet.

Brown says its arts initiative will expand and enhance existing programs and bring new creative and performing arts projects to campus.

A group of faculty and staff working last year with an independent consultant recommended expanding Brown’s performing arts facilities, including building a new performance and production facility for music and dance.
