  • Members are advocates for the museum in the promotion of programs and events while providing feedback on ways to engage colleagues and students.
  • Members are ambassadors to the larger campus community.

The Faculty Advisory Board meets as a full group once a semester. Lunch is provided during the hour-long session, along with details about upcoming exhibitions, events, and programs at the museum. The commitment to participate on the board is two years. Members are nominated by deans.

Faculty Advisory Board subcommittees meet more frequently as suits faculty schedules and goals. These self-directed teams recommend ideas to the Director of Learning + Engagement, help carry out approved initiatives, and put together small budgets as needed. Board members may sit on more than one subcommittee. Subcommittee opportunities include Outreach, Campus Engagement, and Education/Interpretation.


At the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, our galleries become your classroom. Using an object-based learning methodology, artworks forge interdisciplinary connections that transcend subject-specific criteria, and strengthen your curricular goals in the creation of memorable experiences for diverse types of learners.

A growing list of services and resources are listed below.

Plan Your Visit
To schedule a self-guided or docent-led tour of the museum, please contact the Tour Coordinator. Please allow at least two weeks notice for guided tours, and let our Tour Coordinator know if there are specific collections or exhibitions you want to see during your visit.

Create a Specialized Tour
Would you like to create a specialized tour for your class, but aren’t sure where to start? Contact the Learning + Engagement office to start planning a collaborative subject-specific tour using our collections. Past tours have been created with professors from several diverse colleges, including Business, Psychology, Geography, and Anthropology. Specialized tours must be scheduled one semester in advance.

Access Stored Objects
Are there works or collections not on view that you would like to include in a museum visit for your class or individual research? Three weeks notice is required and class size is limited to twenty students. Visits may include up to thirty objects at one time.

Go Behind the Scenes
Do you have a group of students who would benefit from a behind the scenes tour of the museum? Visits can be arranged to meet with staff members representing several museum departments. Behind the scenes tours are particularly useful for students studying art history, anthropology, and museum studies, but is not limited to those subjects. 

Artist and Collection Files
The Learning + Engagement Department maintains files on nearly every artist represented in the museum, in addition to collection-specific records in the museum library. While this resource remains a work in progress, the department is interested in your scholarly contributions pertaining to artists and works in the collection.

Facility Rentals
The museum’s auditorium, classroom, or library may serve as the perfect space for your next meeting, lecture, class, and more. Please contact the Manager of Facilities & Special Events for facility capacity, pricing, and reservations.
