This time of year is always very exciting for the Arts Administration & Museum Leadership program. Our current students are now well into their graduate studies while advancing their careers in a wide range of cultural organizations and museums. We recently sent a group of students to Washington, DC for Museums Advocacy Day, where they visited the Capitol and met with our elected officials to make the case for supporting our nation's museums. Later this month, another group of our students will do the same when they participate in the National Arts Action Summit.
Meanwhile, we are actively interviewing prospective students to be part of our next talented cohort of graduate students. Applications for this fall are still open and we’re always happy to speak with anyone interested in accelerating their career path through our graduate program.
This spring, we’re hosting a variety of events to highlight our leadership role in the sector. On March 26-27, we are the host sponsor of the Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit, where 300 leaders in the arts, urban planning, and government will convene to share new approaches to the role of arts in community development.
On May 4th, we invite you to attend a special event on cultural equity and inclusion, featuring a keynote lecture by Roberto Bedoya, a renowned champion of equitable practices in community planning and placemaking. This will be followed by a dialog with key leaders in arts and urban planning. More details and registration information will be coming soon.
Plans are underway for another social event for all of our alumni and students. Our vast and growing alumni network is one of our greatest assets, and we want to continue to build strong connections with all of you. Be sure to keep in touch and share the exciting updates on your lives. We'll be sharing things on our public Facebook page and on our private Facebook page just for students and alums. We're also on Instagram @DrexelAAML.
