Student interns enliven and advance the Museum’s work in nearly every department, and we aim to put students at the center of all that we do by preparing the next generation of museum professionals and patrons though hands-on experience and engaged learning. Through internships and opportunities for graduate assistants and fellowships, the Museum aims to ensure that students and recent graduates learn from each other and the Johnson’s expert staff.


The Museum offers a variety of services for Cornell alumni. In addition to special tours and exhibits for Reunion, we regularly present exhibitions of alumni collections. Our director and curators hold talks and tours with alumni groups across the country and abroad. Museum staff organize and present classes as part of Cornell’s Adult University (CAU) as well.
