Dear Anthropology Students,
During these unusual times, we want you to know that the Anthropology Department is working at full steam (just remotely) and we are here for you! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us regarding any questions, whether it is academic, or otherwise. We recognize there have been a lot of transitions in such a short time and we hope everyone is managing and staying safe.
There are still two faculty advisors available to meet with you. We are holding office hours via Zoom — just send a quick email to let us know that you’d like to talk with us and we’ll provide you with a link to a zoom meeting. We especially encourage you to get in touch with us if you have questions about Fall 2020 course enrollment.
Kyra Stull has office hours Mondays 2:45 - 3:45 p.m., Wednesdays 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., and by appointment.
Mikaela Rogozen-Soltar has office hours Tuesdays 1 – 4 p.m. and by appointment.
You can also contact the department chair, Christopher Morgan with questions.
The University has gathered some resources and answers to questions for students regarding the coronavirus. Included on this site is information about emergency funds, Pack Provisions, computer access and pro-rated housing refunds.
Some information that may be helpful to you during this transition to online learning:
