University Programs

Students in front of the SUMA building

Being a university-based art museum, the students of Southern Utah University are the museum's primary audience. SUMA offers a wide range of programs for the university, including student internships, special student events, and more. Students are invited to engage in activities such as the Art Insights lecture series and new programs like SUMA Happenings and Art Adventures. All of the programs are offered free of charge unless otherwise noted.
