Museum Student Advisory Council Applications Open for Spring 2020

Calling all U of A students! Did you know that the University of Arkansas has a museum? Well, this is your chance to become involved in the wonderful world of museums! In the spring of 2020, the U of A Museum will be launching its first ever Student Advisory Council and they want you to be a part of it.

Totaling over 7 million objects, the University of Arkansas Museum has a diverse range of artifacts that could interest any major. From finance and chemistry to history and geology, the University Museum provides opportunities for students and faculty to do research, interact with the community, build work experience, and explore their passions. This spring, the University Museum is making it a priority to serve the campus community more effectively by creating this council.

Starting in January, the Student Advisory Council will meet twice a month to help shape the museum's goals and outreach efforts using their experiences as U of A students. This student input will be essential for the museum's development and give students direct access to the inner workings of a museum. During their time on the council, students will also serve as ambassadors for the museum and have opportunities to develop events that align with their interests and appeal to the student body.

Since interdisciplinary perspectives will be key to the council's success, all majors are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate and graduate students are both welcome to apply, and no museum experience is necessary.

If you are interested in being a part of the U of A Museum's Student Advisory Council, please click here to learn more and fill out a quick application. This application is due by noon on Jan. 16, 2020. We can't wait to hear from you next semester!
