ULRICH MUSEUM GOVERNANCE
The Ulrich Museum of Art is governed by its parent organization, Wichita State University. The museum director reports to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Research.
Museum direction is also guided by the Ulrich Advisory Board, composed of no more than 25 university and community leaders. The Advisory Board reports to the WSU Foundation, which holds legal title to the museum's art collection, and it is empowered by Wichita State University to serve as the museum's de facto governing body. The long-term purposes and policies of the museum are subject to review by the Kansas Board of Regents.
The Ulrich benefits from a second support group. The Ulrich Museum Alliance, an association of no more than 15 individuals, supports the museum by providing active volunteers who are committed to:
- raising awareness of the Ulrich;
- building audience for and participation at Ulrich functions;
- supporting Ulrich membership efforts.
Ulrich staff members are employees of Wichita State University, a state entity.
