RAAMP served to promote scholarship, advocacy, and discussion related to the role of academic art museums and their contribution to the educational mission of their parent institutions. To this end, it functioned as a publicly accessible online repository; it collected, stored, and shared resources. RAAMP ran from 2016 to 2022 with the support of the Mellon Foundation and affiliated societies and museums. 


Resources for Academic Art Museum Professionals (RAAMP) aims to strengthen the educational mission of academic museums and their parent organizations by providing a publicly accessible repository of resources, online forums, and relevant news and information.  


RAAMP was created in response to a 2013 College Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference session organized by CAA’s Museum Committee titled: “The Position of Academic Programs in Campus Art Museums: What, Why, Who, and Where To?” Attendees expressed the need to efficiently share information and strategies for communicating how their academic museums contribute to the educational mission of their parent institutions. In 2015, CAA received support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the development of RAAMP. This program ended in 2022. As a CAA project, RAAMP would also not be possible without the help of its partner organizations: Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC), Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), and Association of Academic Museums and Galleries (AAMG), and representatives from the following U.S.-based academic museum stakeholders:
