  • Kress Fellowships for Applied Research
    In 2011, with generous support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Ackland began a series of projects that engage graduate students at UNC-Chapel Hill in interpreting works of art in our collection. In each of the project years, teams of graduate students focus on works of art selected from the Museum’s collection of European art from Classical antiquity through the mid-nineteenth century.
  • Carolina K-12 (formerly the NC Civic Education Consortium)
    Carolina K-12, a program of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Program in the Humanities & Human Values, works with schools, governments, and community organizations to prepare North Carolina’s young people to be active, responsible citizens. The program offers quality professional development programs and innovative lesson plans.

Many of our workshops provide opportunities to learn about other valuable resources on the University’s campus.
