The Stanley Campus Council (SCC), founded in 2019, is the Stanley Museum of Art's student-run advisory board. The SCC provides a platform for UI students to emphasize their voice at the Stanley: they develop and facilitate student-specific programming, create and share original content, and gain valuable leadership and career experience while getting a behind-the-scenes look at the museum.

SCC Events

Every month, the SCC hosts a Thursday-night event at the Stanley. 

Each of these "Monthly Meetups" involves an activity or craft designed by students for students, with the goal of exposing a broad cross-section of the student body to the resources, spaces, and opportunities the Stanley offers them--regardless of their major or their interest in art and art history.

Two students stand together in front of the Odita mural in the Stanley lobby. Each of them is holding their clay creation in their hands. They're smiling, posing with the two clay snowmen they've made.

Dec 8 Winter De-Stress Fest

Friday, December 9, 2022
For our December Monthly Meetup, we focused on creating a space for students to de-stress before finals week. We set out some board games, offered some arts and crafts activities, ordered food, and put on Wallace and Grommit on the lobby's big screen.
