NMC is proud to welcome Craig Hadley as the new Executive Director of the Dennos Museum Center!

Craig comes to NMC from DePauw University in Indiana where he was Director/Curator with rank of Assistant Professor. He oversaw the recently accredited University Galleries & Collections, which serves as a hub for undergraduate teaching and research. Craig also regularly taught independent studies and capstone courses, introductory museum workshops, and reading topics in the program’s museum studies minor.

The NMC search committee highlighted Craig’s understanding of the higher education landscape, passion for the mission of museums and desire for interconnected learning and building bridges as some of his strengths.

Craig holds a master’s degree in History and Museum Studies from the University of Missouri and a bachelor’s degree from Beloit College. He is an active board member of the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries, and also serves as a grant reviewer for the Institute of Museum & Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Please welcome Craig when he officially begins his new role with NMC on September 4, 2019.
