Anthropology Clubs and Associations

The Anthropology Student Association

The Anthropology Student Association is a student-run organization that utilizes the four fields of Anthropology to create a platform for open minds; collaboration; and world understanding. They seek to provide a space that gives students a holistic view on Anthropology; helps to build leadership skills; allows room for creativity; and ensures preparation for the next stages in life. In this capacity they sponsor programs of anthropological interest.
