Student Docents

Meeting Museum staff members, organizing an installation and online exhibition, developing tours for U-M Staff and public, working with children and families on the weekends, and welcoming and interacting with guests during UMMA After Hours and Student Late Night are some of the possible activities you would undertake as an UMMA Student Docent. This program invites you to be creative and enthusiastic as you engage with visitors in the galleries and offers you time to peek inside Museum operations. It provides an introduction to museums in general and to museum education in particular.

Student Docents are part of the Student Programming and Advisory Council (SPAC), which serves as a direct link between UM students and UMMA. It is dedicated to helping support UMMA’s mission of commitment to students and engagement with the arts. SPAC is a great opportunity to get experience working in a museum, and a great way to ensure that U-M students have a voice at UMMA.

All participants are required to attend meetings on Fridays, 2-4 pm, and to work approximately one to two more hours per week on diverse tasks. Information sessions will be held on Friday, September 11th at 2:00 pm and Wednesday, September 16th at 4:00 pm at UMMA. Undergraduate Museum Studies Program students may use SPAC membership to fulfill their internship requirement.

Interested U-M students are invited to submit an application to the program by September 16th.
