Quilt Center earns accreditationMay 23rd, 2013 | By tfedderson2 | Category: 2013, Arts & Entertainment, Issue, May 23
The International Quilt Study Center and Museum has achieved accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition for a museum. Accreditation signifies excellence to the museum community, to governments, funders, outside agencies and to the museum-going public.
AAM accreditation is the field’s primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation and public accountability, and earns national recognition for a museum for its commitment to excellence in all that it does: governance, collections stewardship, public programs, financial stability, high professional standards and continued institutional improvement.
Of the nation’s estimated 17,500 museums, 1,005 are accredited. The International Quilt Study Center and Museum is the third museum at UNL to achieve this distinction, joining the Sheldon Museum of Art and the University of Nebraska State Museum.
