Support and Mentorship A key component of the experience is the nurturing professional environment created by museum staff. Access to College Resources As full-time employees of Smith College, the post- baccalaureate fellows are afforded the same resources and benefits as all other staff, including both traditional employee benefits, like paid time off and health insurance, and college-specific resources, including on-campus lectures and performances, library access and fitness classes. Affirming Goals and Values Though not all fellows have gone on to pursue museum careers, each left SCMA with a better understanding of her professional path as it relates to art, education and museums. Fresh Perspectives While more seasoned staff bring decades of experience, the youngest staff members on the SCMA team contribute new ideas and insights to the collaborative work of the museum. As museums across the country strive to reach out to millennial audiences, SCMA has three positions on staff reserved for members of the generation identified as a core audience. Capacity for Student Engagement With the addition of three full-time, albeit temporary, staff members, the museum has been able to take on additional programming and outreach projects aimed at attracting Smith College students. Attendance Growth While there are myriad reasons behind attendance growth in any area, it can be inferred that the added presence of the post-baccalaureate fellows across the museum has contributed to the growth in college student attendance since 2009.
