Announcement: Exciting Changes are Coming to MAP! (Museum Assessment Program)

November 05, 2019 2:37 PM | many info (Administrator)

Applications for the American Alliance of Museums' Museum Assessment Program (MAP) in the areas of Education & Interpretation, Board Leadership, Organizational, Collections Stewardship, and Community & Audience Engagement are due December 1.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services has announced our new funding.

What’s happening?

  • The existing Organizational, Collections Stewardship, and Community & Audience Engagement assessments are getting fresh updates
  • DEAI (diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion) components will be integrated into all assessments
  • Museums will have more time to complete the Self-Study Workbook and activities, which will be spread throughout the year long process
  • Museums will have more touch points with the Peer Reviewer throughout the process
  • New activities and tools will help move museums from increasing awareness to taking action and implementing change
  • Enhanced training and peer-to-peer engagement for the Peer Reviewers

What’s not changing? The tried and true core structure of MAP—the self-assessment, site visit by a peer, and a recommendation-laden report—remains in place.
