CURTIS SMITH - currently serves as the executive director of Ivy Tech Community College’s Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL). In this capacity he directs and manages all aspects of the college’s enrichment learning initiatives–from developing and managing summer arts camps to cultivating partnerships with local artists, nonprofits, educators, and business to develop community-centric programming. During his tenure he has increased enrollment and revenues to record levels, expanded programming to nearly 300 offerings a year, and launched the program’s first online enrollment management system. Before his current role, Curtis served as director’s assistant for the IU Jacobs Office of Entrepreneurship & Career Development where he helped launch the newly-formed organization and many of its flagship programs: well-advised lunch series, artist meet and greets, weekly arts digest, and more. Curtis holds a doctorate in music composition from the IU Jacobs School of Music, with a minor in Arts Administration from IU SPEA. His music encompasses an amalgamation of styles ranging from rock to contemporary art music and has been described as scientific and explorative. Recent projects include the orchestral work E Pluribus—a portrait of democracy whose orchestration “takes on a mythic and mystic nature that unfolds in intertwining fashion,” Hymns: An Ambient Exploration, and a spectral orchestra work based on and inspired by Erik Satie’s Gymnopedies. Recent community involvement includes participating in the Monroe County Foundation’s out-of-school STEM advisory group and the Bloomington After School Network, where Curtis works to help to ensure impactful allocation of resources to the benefit of local youth outside of school. Curtis and his wife co-developed “KonMari for a Cause,” a free class offered through the Ivy Tech CLL that uses the popular KonMari method to help people declutter and donate items to local nonprofits. As the regional music chairman for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Curtis managed musical activities across all church congregations for Monroe and several neighboring counties and produced an annual Christmas concert for the last three years. Curtis shares the beauty of Bloomington and the warmth of its community with his wife, Carly, their twin 4 ½ year old boys, and a new baby girl.
