UMMA's Student Advisory Board (SAB) is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience within a museum setting and give U-M's student body a voice at UMMA.

SAB is a group of students with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences whose goal is to expand what UMMA can be for the campus community. SAB is dedicated to creating a culturally inclusive community through programmatic efforts, and amplifying student voices to shape the museum.

Members of the Leadership Board ideally serve in a position for at least one year and are expected to contribute 2-4 hours each week to UMMA. Meetings for the SAB usually take place weekly on Fridays. 

Opportunities for the SAB Leadership Board Include:

  • Developing creative, diverse, and inclusive programs which engage students with UMMA's exhibitions and collections
  • Interviewing artists and curators
  • Creative oversight and contributions on UMMA's Student Blog
  • Organizing installation and online exhibitions
  • Network with other university, student, and museum professionals through MuZoom — a collective networking opportunity hosted by several midwestern art museums and their Student Councils.
  • and more!

SAB members receive a stipend of $250 per semester. Participation in the SAB Leadership Board for both the Fall and Winter semesters satisfies the Museum Studies Program internship requirement.
