Reporting to the Linde Family Foundation curator of academic engagement, the Linde Family Foundation coordinator of academic access provides critical assistance to all aspects of the academic program and fosters an inclusive museum experience for students and faculty. The coordinator plans and executes the logistics of the academic program, communicating with faculty and with colleagues at the museum and Colby departments. The coordinator also teaches frequently and across the Colby curriculum using the museum’s collections and exhibitions as resources for inquiry-based learning, creative production, and cross-disciplinary discovery. With guidance from the curator for academic engagement and in collaboration with staff across the museum, including curators, they organize rotations in the museum’s teaching gallery, design strategies for teaching and learning, facilitate the development of digital resources, and build collaborations with faculty and students in order to ensure that campus audiences have access to a range of experiences to enrich their academic work in the museum. The coordinator contributes to the professional growth of students employed at the museum as interns, assistants, welcome desk staff, etc. through programming and mentorship.
