The Educator Advisory Council (EAC) advises and supports the New Museum’s Department of Education and Public Programs with its mission to cultivate growth—aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual—through inquiry and to strengthen people’s connections with themselves, one another, and the wider world. The Council collaborates with staff to develop and promote resources and programs for school groups, youth, and teachers, ensuring meaningful, high-quality connections and resources for educators and their students.
Members of the Educator Advisory Council should represent a range of experiences and identities themselves and in regards to their teaching and learning communities (including diversity in terms of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, age, ability, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion). Applicants who bring experience teaching within diverse communities are encouraged to apply. Please discuss your experiences facilitating access and inclusion in your application.
