He is a member of Marquette's Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art Faculty Advisory Committee and the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.

She serves as the President of the Milwaukee Art Museum’s American Arts Society and as a member of the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.
