SUNY Oneonta (Cooperstown Graduate Program)

Log Number: MP-00-08-0046-08

SUNY's Cooperstown Graduate Program will partner with the Museum Association of New York and the New York State Historical Association to create an institute to train the next generation of cultural "entrepreneurs." Focusing on the Northeast region, participants will be selected from a wide range of museums. Coursework will be designed to spark innovation and creativity in the planning and execution of all aspects of museum work, and to refine the skills and abilities of mid-career museum staff that will prepare them for future leadership roles. The institute will use a case-study, interactive approach with leaders who have led fundamental change within their own institutions. All materials will be recorded and made available on a companion Web site that will be accessible to institute participants as well as to the field, scholars, and the public.
