Biographical history

Kersti Krug is a researcher and writer in the field of non-profit management, and a former Director of Communications and Manager of Research and Evaluation at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

Before joining MOA, Krug was Senior Personnel Advisor to the Auditor General of Canada (1980) and Assistant Director of the National Gallery of Canada (1980-1988). Between 1991 and 1997, she worked for the UBC Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration as a researcher, instructor, and Acting Director of the Arts Administration Option.

In 1990, Krug began work at MOA. Her first position at MOA was Director of Communications (1990-1998); subsequently, she occupied the roles of Manager of Research and Evaluation (1998-2001) and director of the Certificate in Museum Studies program (1997-1998). Her work at MOA involved program development and organizational change management. Major projects included creating marketing projects, conducting visitor studies, co-creation and development of the Certificate in Museum Studies program, project management for the expansion of the MOA building, developing business plans, and grant writing.

During this period, Krug was also director of studies for an interdisciplinary graduate program in critical curatorial studies in the Faculty of Arts (1998-2001). After leaving MOA in 2001, Krug joined the Faculty of Graduate Studies as Assistant Dean, Strategic Planning and Communications (2001-2006). She was instrumental in the 2007 founding of the College for Interdisciplinary Studies, of which she became Assistant Principal, Strategic Development and Administration. Krug retired form this position in 2009 to work as a consultant.

Krug completed her MBA at UBC in 1990, and in 1999 received her PhD from UBC’s Individual Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program. Her thesis on managing administrative change in MOA is entitled “A hypermediated ethnography of organizational change: conversations in the Museum of Anthropology.”

Custodial history

Scope and content

This series consists of records relating to the development and administration of MOA’s Certificate in Museum Studies Program, which ran for a single season in 1997. Materials produced during the early stages of conceptualization and development date from the early 1990s, and include funding applications for a study on other museum studies programs, the results of this survey, other research materials, and multiple drafts of a report arguing for the need for a Museum Studies program at MOA. The majority of the records, dating from the mid- to late-nineties, document the administration of the program and the collaborative process of curriculum development. Materials include grant applications, program proposals, brochures, schedules of tasks and progress reports, agendas, curricula drafts and MOA staff comments on these drafts. Later records include final copies of syllabi and other teaching materials and evaluative reports on the 1997 program. Finally, the series also provides documentation of the decision to cancel the program in 1999.
