Student Docents

In fall 2023, 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 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 beginning Friday, September 1, 2023, through Friday, September 15, 2023
  • In-person interviews for selected applicants will be scheduled between September 18th and September 25th
  • Candidates selected for admission to the program will be notified by Friday, September 29, 2023

 Note: Applicants to the program should be currently enrolled undergraduate students at the University of Georgia who can commit to participating in the program for one year (October 2023 – May 2024).
