Our Mission

The Yager Museum of Art & Culture, a center for exploration of our artistic, archaeological, ethnographical, historical materials and culture heritage, serves as an experiential learning lab that engages students in the museum’s efforts in collecting, preserving, researching and interpreting collections according to the highest standards of professional practice.

Our Vision

Through engaging exhibitions and programs that capture the imagination of students and the public, the Museum facilitates contemplation and discussion of objects and ideas from the past to spark creativity, insight, and inspiration about diverse cultures, including realities from the past and prospects for the future.
