Office of the President

Julia Halevy
Acting President

Julia Halevy is Acting President and Provost and Academic Vice President of the Boston Architectural College. Having worked for many years in institutions that provide professional education through the integration of theory and practice, Julia is familiar with nontraditional instruction and is well-versed in translating between the entrepreneurial spirit that sustains these programs and the requirements of the accrediting bodies that approve them. Julia works to support the development of collaborative management practices that enhance the BAC's capacity to welcome and sustain inclusivity. She focuses on team-building, collective and responsible fiscal practices, and innovative program development.

Julia received her bachelor's degree, cum laude, from Mount Holyoke College and her Doctor of Pedagogy, with highest distinction and honors, from the University of Florence, Italy, where she lived for more than twelve years. Julia has also completed advanced training in family and cognitive/behavioral therapies and is a licensed psychologist and healthcare provider, as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist in Massachusetts. Prior to joining the BAC in 2009, Julia was dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Social Sciences at Lesley University for five years, and she had served Antioch University at its graduate campus in Keene, New Hampshire for 21 years.

At Lesley, Julia fostered the development of several new academic programs and was the founding chair of the University Graduate Council, a group serving cross-university doctoral programs' policies and procedures, visions, and values. She also served as chair of the Academic Advising Task Force, defining a university-wide mission, standards, assessment and workload related to all advising functions. At Antioch, she founded both a master's program in Marriage and Family Therapy and the school-wide Diversity Committee. Julia has also published articles and book chapters on social network intervention and strategies for teaching courses on diversity.
