The Student Programming and Advisory Council

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.

Opportunities for SPAC members include: developing creative projects to engage students with UMMA’s exhibitions and collections, interviewing artists and curators, contributing to UMMA’s student blog, The Annex, planning and implementing annual events such as Student Late Night, meeting Museum staff members, organizing an installation and online exhibition, developing tours for adult and youth audiences, and building UMMA’s profile on social media and around campus.

The Student Programming and Advisory Council (SPAC) serves as a direct link between U-M students and UMMA. It is dedicated to helping support UMMA’s mission of commitment to students and engagement with the arts.

The SPAC is made up of three committees: Student Docents; Events & Programs; and Marketing & Outreach. Students are asked to serve on at least one committee.

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.
