Summer Program

Center for Collections Care

The Center for Collections Care at Beloit College (C 3 ) provides one-of-a-kind opportunities for hands-on learning and practice for emerging and practicing museum, library, archive, and conservation professionals.

Our distinctive resources-two campus museums (Logan Museum of Anthropology and Wright Museum of Art), a vibrant archive, historic costume, and natural history collections-situated on the residential campus of a small, liberal arts college, provide unparalleled opportunities to gain new skills, network with other professionals, and better prepare for advancement. 

The Center’s courses are taught by accomplished professionals who are committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise. The Center’s residential learning community of practice offers participants the opportunity to connect with and learn from one another. The real impact of Center for Collections Care at Beloit College training is realized when participants return to their home institutions equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to effect positive change. Courses are open to all, but participants do not receive Beloit College academic credit.

Beloit College is home to a well-established and nationally recognized Museum Studies Program that supports the integration of knowledge with experience, a core component of the College’s mission.

Center for Collections Care post graduate fellows, scholarships, and new online course development have been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands wisdom.

The Center for Collections Care is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2024 season.
