Thesis abstract

The importance of university museums: a case study on the NUS Museum

University museums have been around for hundreds of years and yet, there has not been much discourse about them in Singapore. This research aims to understand the importance of university museums and the roles that they play within the university and within society. A case study was done on the NUS Museum that resides within Singapore’s top university, the National University of Singapore, to discover the importance of the NUS Museum and how they stay relevant to the university and other communities. Through an interview with Michelle Kuek, the Outreach Manager at the NUS Museum, insights were given into their programming, as well as faculty partnerships and challenges faced within the collaboration process.
