SCMA is recognized as a pioneer in this area, with our holdings actively used by faculty in the humanities, sciences and social sciences, including dozens of immersive, museum-based courses taught on-site. A new interpretive plan aligned the way we present our collection with the college’s learning goals for Smith students. It was integrated in 2014–15 with the complete refurbishment and reinstallation of the museum’s galleries, a project that also created new display spaces within the building’s existing footprint. We have continually challenged ourselves to make everything we do a learning opportunity for students. Each year, dozens of Smith students gain hands-on understanding of the world and work of museums through work-study and volunteer opportunities in virtually every SCMA department. This notably includes our Student Museum Educator program, which provides educational services for pre-K through 12th-grade classes from local schools while training Smith students in methods of gallery teaching and interpretation. In 2009, museum staff collaborated with an interdisciplinary faculty advisory committee to launch the Museums Concentration, a distinctive academic opportunity for undergraduates to explore the history and cultural role of museums and the professional disciplines they engage through a combination of courses, practical experiences and independent research. This program in the study of museums was the first concentration offered by the college and it has provided the organizational model for a growing number of concentrations at Smith. A post-baccalaureate fellowship program, also established in 2009, has extended this educational opportunity to recent college graduates by offering mentored, entry-level work experiences in museum education, marketing and communication, and curatorial work.
