Who are we for?
UMG is a membership organisation, open to HE institutions with responsibility for museums, galleries or collections and individuals interested in furthering the work of UMG.
What do we do?
UMG provides a forum for communication and the dissemination of good practice. In advocating for the university museum sector, UMG promotes the role of university museums, galleries and collections in research and HE teaching and the importance of their contribution to widening participation and public engagement.
UMG aims to provide members with briefing, news and information on a wide range of topics. As well regular e-communication, UMG organises conferences and events, including an annual meeting linked to the AGM that supports networking, staff development and the sharing of knowledge about current developments and opportunities for the sector.
