RAAMP serves to promote scholarship, advocacy, and discussion related to the role of academic art museums and their contribution to the educational mission of their parent institutions. To this end, it functions as a publicly accessible online repository; it collects, stores, and shares resources. RAAMP is a project of CAA with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Resources for Academic Art Museum Professionals (RAAMP) aims to strengthen the educational mission of academic museums and their parent organizations by providing a publicly accessible repository of resources, online forums, and relevant news and information. 


RAAMP was created in response to a 2013 College Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference session organized by CAA’s Museum Committee titled: “The Position of Academic Programs in Campus Art Museums: What, Why, Who, and Where To?” Attendees expressed the need to efficiently share information and strategies for communicating how their academic museums contribute to the educational mission of their parent institutions. In 2015, CAA received support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the development of RAAMP. As a CAA project, RAAMP would also not be possible without the help of its partner organizations: Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC), Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), and Association of Academic Museums and Galleries (AAMG), and representatives from the following U.S.-based academic museum stakeholders:


Art Galleries at Lafayette College
Bowdoin College Museum of Art
Fowler Museum at UCLA
Galleries of Contemporary Art at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs
Hood Museum at Dartmouth College
Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami
Neuberger Museum at SUNY Purchase College Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at University of Florida
Schnitzer Museum at University of Oregon
Smart Museum of Art at University of Chicago
Spelman College Museum of Art
Spencer Museum of Art at University of Kansas
