Student Docents

In spring 2022, the University of Georgia’s Special Collections Libraries will recruit a new class of participants for the Student Docent Program. Our goal is to recruit UGA undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to leading engaging tours of the exhibit galleries for visitors of all ages. Participants in the program will develop skills in archival research, public speaking, and community outreach. They will also gain valuable work experience in both archive and museum settings. 

Dates to Know:

  • We will accept applications through Friday, February 4, 2022
  • In-person interviews for selected applicants will be scheduled from February 7-18
  • Candidates selected for admission to the program will be notified by Friday, February 25, 2022. 

 Note: Applicants to the program should be currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students at the University of Georgia who can commit to participating in the program for one year (February 2022 – May 2023).
