Name of creator
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.”
Scope and content
The fonds reflects Kersti Krug’s work on several major projects relating to organizational change and development at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology (MOA). Records created during Krug’s period as Director of Communications relate predominantly to surveys and studies conducted with members of, and visitors to, the Museum. Records Krug created in her capacity as co-director of MOA’s Certificate in Museum Studies Program illustrate the development of the program and its curriculum, and also its cancellation. As Manager of Research and Evaluation, Krug was involved in the initial stages of the MOA building expansion; records she produced during this period illustrate her consultative approach to assessing MOA’s space needs and her solicitation of proposals from architectural firms.
Records produced during these activities include proposals, questionnaires, interview transcriptions, data sets, graphs and charts, notes, drafts, and reports, draft curricula, copies of email correspondence, syllabi, research materials, and brochures.
The fonds has been arranged into the series:
A) Certificate in Museum Studies Program
B) MOA Space Needs and Development Options
C) Visitor Studies and Surveys
D) Vision/ Mission Statement
E) Galleries and Exhibitions.
