Mellon Coordinator for Student Engagement, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University

The Johnson Museum of Art actively contributes to the intellectual life of the campus and community, serving as an important educational and cultural resource for Cornell students and faculty as well as residents of the central New York region. Thought-provoking programs explore ideas across disciplines and ensure that the Museum’s collection and exhibitions are seen, studied, and taught to their maximum curricular potential. Through interaction with original works of art we encourage independent thinking and help visitors experience the multiple ways that information can be conveyed by a work of art.


Position Description: With support from the Ames Curator of Education, the Mellon Coordinator for Student Engagement develops University outreach programs for students, working with campus organizations, classes, and University staff.


Duties:  Develop, promote, lead, document, and evaluate innovative programs for students that focus on exhibitions, the permanent collection, and the interests of students.  Coordinate program scheduling and serve as the liaison between the Museum and student organizations.  Help secure funds for student programs, and provide statistical data and other support as requested by the supervisor.  Must be willing to work weekend and evening hours on a regular basis during the academic year, and as the program schedule requires.
