More information about MOMSI
Working with the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, the Greensboro History Museum will study the social impact we have on our community and assist in refining a social impact tool for the museum field.
Thanks to a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS), the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, in partnership with Thanksgiving Point, had the opportunity to select museums across the country for the Measurement of Museum Social Impact (MOMSI) project. After a competitive application and review process, GHM was one of 38 museums selected for the study.
Social impact is the effect of an activity on the social fabric of a community and the well-being of those who live there. This study will measure social impact through strengthened relationships, health and well-being, continued education and engagement, and intercultural competency.
Working with the MOMSI team in Utah, our museum will recruit and survey visitors from our local community. The data collected will inform the Greensboro History Museum about our social impact and will provide validated data about the museum field generally.
