AAM Accreditation

In March 2013 the International Quilt Study Center & Museum received 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. IQSCM is the third museum at UNL to achieve this distinction, joining Sheldon Museum of Art and University of Nebraska State Museum.
