Our Commitment to Promoting an Inclusive University

The Department of Anthropology is a vibrant intellectual community that seeks to advance knowledge of and respect for human diversity. Our faculty members have diverse expertise, spanning the sociocultural, linguistic, biological, archaeological, and medical anthropology subfields. We are focused on elevating our national standing by building on existing strengths, through strategic hiring, and by fostering innovative collaborations across units and institutions. Specifically, we seek to make substantive research and teaching contributions to understanding the arc of human diversity in its environmental, social, historical, and biological dimensions. We also seek to play a leadership role in diversity efforts on campus through hiring, scholarship, and teaching; and grow collaborations between faculty, students, and stakeholders.
