The Mellon Opportunity for Diversity in Conservation Staff conducts in-person presentations between October and February with a focus on schools in the western region due to our geographical location. Our audience is primarily currently enrolled undergraduate students in classes such as art history, museums studies, studio art, archaeology, anthropology, chemistry, ethnic studies and an other field that may relate to our interdisciplinary discipline. Our aim is to connect with students and recent post-baccalaureates who might be interested in exploring a potential career in conservation.
