2019 AAMG Annual Conference: Call for Proposals

Learning Laboratory and Community Center: Positioning the Academic Museum for Success
University of Minnesota | Conference Dates: June 27-30, 2019

Both higher education and civic responsibility are under siege today by economic, cultural, and political forces.  Yet both are essential for a robust democracy. What can those of us working in academic museums and galleries do to help reverse this trend, and how do we advocate effectively for this work among our key stakeholders?

This year’s AAMG Annual Conference at the University of Minnesota invites you to reflect upon our relevance to parent institutions and local communities. Can we effectively bridge increasingly polarized values and priorities among our broad constituencies and still fulfill our mission and core values?  How do we mentor students in the digital age? And what can we do to transform our institutions to reflect shifting demographics, financial challenges, and new learning methodologies?

We invite you to submit conference proposals that address these questions and topics. Please submit your proposal using this link by December 1, 2018.  Continue reading “2019 AAMG Annual Conference: Call for Proposals”
