Museum Student Council members during the spring 2020 semester.

Calling all U of A students! Applications for the University of Arkansas Museum's Student Council are open for the 2020-21 term.

The Student Council will meet twice a month to provide input and assistance for the University Museum to better serve the campus community. During their time on the council, students will have opportunities to develop projects that align with their interests and direct access to the inner workings of a museum.

Members will split into subcommittees that fit their interests and customize their experience: event planning, marketing/PR, diversity and inclusion, exhibits, fundraising, mission, and education.

Since interdisciplinary perspectives are key to the council's success, all majors are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate and graduate students are both welcome to apply. Museum experience or plans for a museum career are not necessary.

If interested in joining the Museum Student Council, fill out this quick application. The deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 28. We can't wait to hear from you!

About the Museum: The University of Arkansas Museum is dedicated to sharing and expanding knowledge through interdisciplinary collection-based research, interpretation, and education for the betterment of the UA community and State of Arkansas. University faculty may request loans of specimens for their classes or arrange to bring their classes to the University Collections Facility for a visit. Specimens and their associated documentation are available for comparative and research purposes by faculty, students, and visiting scholars. We are also working to improve outreach efforts through community engagement programs and exhibitions.
