Moving the Needle: Academic Museums and Galleries Innovating the Future
Colleges and universities are centers of innovation and known for many scientific, medical, technological and cultural advances. In a broad array of fields, such as curricular integration, education, visual literacy, on and off campus constituency support, international collaboration, and beyond, we are redefining the role academic museums or galleries play on their campuses. These new, more efficient, and more impactful techniques for achieving our goals, when shared, assist our colleagues from around the world to more effectively fulfill their missions. Museum professionals know that academic museums and galleries are vital centers of original research, interdisciplinary dialogue, and participatory learning. We invite you to participate in this year's conference where exemplary professionals inspire us with new ways of truly pushing the envelope of our field.
The Association of Academic Museums and Galleries is the leading educational and professional organization for academic museums, galleries, and collections. In recognition of the unique opportunities and challenges of its constituents, the AAMG establishes and supports best practices, educational activities and professional development that enable its member organizations to fulfill their educational missions.
