Using the museum’s rotating exhibitions as well as its permanent collections, the Gregg offers both faculty and students opportunities to supplement regular classroom teaching and independent research. Guided tours, collaborative partnerships, special workshops, internships, and access to collection objects are only some of the many possible options that can be arranged by contacting the Curator of Education. Area K-12 teachers are also invited to make use of the museum resources.
The Gregg Museum offers educational opportunities for NC State and the surrounding community, including internships and collaborations with faculty. If you have questions about our programs, please contact our Curator of Education, Zoe Starling.

- Present an image-based presentation in your classroom that features objects from the permanent collection that pertain to any particular lesson.
You and your students can also meet guest artists, curators, distinguished visiting scholars and members of the arts community.
