The purpose of the Weatherspoon Art Museum Council (WAMC) is to support the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s mission and serve as the advisory body of the Weatherspoon Art Museum at UNC Greensboro. The WAMC holds the museum’s collection in trust on behalf of UNC Greensboro for the education, well-being, and enjoyment of the university community, the people of North Carolina, and beyond.
WAMC supports the museum’s mission and advances the museum’s capacity to:
● Build, manage, and preserve an increasingly diverse and significant collection
● promote access to the museum and its resources through a demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion
● amplify the visibility, reputation, and accessibility of the museum
● secure resources to support all areas of the museum’s operations and collections
