Covid-19: Beyond the Crisis?

Covid 19: Beyond the Crisis?‘ results from the survey undertaken by the UMG committee in April 2021.

As with our report published a year ago, this is a powerful document. The report clearly articulates the continuing impacts of the Covid crisis on our sector and our members’ concerns, especially over funding, capital works, research and teaching, but it also highlights the hugely creative and committed contribution being made as we enter the recovery period, pointing to a distinctive role for university museums, which calls out for recognition, development and investment.

Thank you again to everyone who responded to this survey and helped make the report rich with information and narrative. Particular thanks are owed to our Oxford colleagues, Dr Hattie Warburton, Dr Emma Webster and Sara Harman, for compiling the report.
