SCRAM (Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum) is a student group that works closely with the Rose Art Museum to organize events for the Brandeis student body. 

Funded through the generous contributions of Mr. Alex Barkas '68 and his wife, Ms. Lynda Wijcik, the goal of this committee is to strengthen the relationship between the Rose and Brandeis students. 

SCRAM events expose students to the Rose who may be unfamiliar with the museum as well as provide students with opportunities for more in-depth interaction with the museum and its collection. Additionally, SCRAM serves as the voice of the student body to the Rose Art Museum, communicating student interests and opinions.

Past events include SCRAM JAM (a dance party held at the museum), Gallery Talks, Study Night at the Rose, Yoga in the Rose, and live music performances.

The Rose is now hiring a new head of SCRAM. Download the position description (PDF) for further details.

Students, if you are interested in being a part of SCRAM or getting SCRAM involved in an event you are planning, please email roseartmuseum@brandeis.edu.

The Gallery Guide Program at the Rose Art Museum is a pilot project intended to model what a future department of Museum Education might include. At present, the museum does not have a dedicated Education curator and relies on the expertise of a highly experienced consultant, Nicole Claris, Manager of School Programs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, who provides rigorous training for students interested in the visual arts and museum pedagogies.

The Gallery Guide Program invites students as volunteers to meet weekly in Pollock or the Rose Art Museum. Participants will be exposed to the field of museum education through sessions which will include training in Visual Thinking Strategies, practical discussions and role-playing, and meetings with museum professionals from the Rose.

This program is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Build confidence as a leader
  • Develop expertise as a public speaker
  • Meet with others to talk about art and its value to community
  • Develop close looking techniques which will enhance critical thinking and observational skills, which may be applied in all fields of study


  • Access to the museum during quiet hours
  • Opportunity to meet with professionals in the museum field
  • Invitations to meet with visiting artists
  • Behind-the-scenes looks at museum operations
  • Impact: Contribute critical observations that will inform the future of museum operations

Brandeis University and the Rose Art Museum is committed to providing its students, faculty, and staff with an environment conducive to learning and working and where all people are treated with respect and dignity. Toward that end, it is essential that Brandeis and the Rose be free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, ancestry, religious creed, gender identity and expression, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, age, genetic information, disability, military or veteran status, or any other category protected by law. 

The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies: Vice President of Human Resources, Bernstein-Marcus building, 781-736-4464.
