Student Docents

Block Museum Student Docents play a key role in animating the vision of the museum.

What do student docents do?

Block Student Docents serve as tour guides, public facilitators, peer-to-peer ambassadors for the museum on campus, and in-house student advisors for all levels of museum staff and our Board of Advisors.

They lead tours throughout the museum and engage our broad array of campus and community visitors in dynamic conversations about art and ideas that are relevant to our lives today. In addition to this public-facing role, Docents serve as key campus ambassadors for The Block and student advisors for all levels of museum staff and leadership, help to shape programming and projects at the museum, and learn more about museum practice through behind-the-scenes insights and experience.

Who are Block student docents?

Student docents span the campus, majoring in English, Philosophy, Economics, Sociology, Global Health, Theater, Journalism, Middle Eastern and North African Studies, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Social Policy, Radio, Television and Film and more.
