Department of Anthropology Alumni and Friends Advisory Board

This Board serves as well-informed advocates for the Department with relevant constituencies in the University of Nebraska and the State, enhancing and broadening the reputation of the Department, helping to educate, inform, and inspire our undergraduate majors and graduate students on career decision-making and the value of the Anthropology program and major, and helping to find potential donors to support the Department.

The first meeting of the Alumni Advisory Council took place on Earth Day, April 22, 2015 and the second meeting occurred on October 28, 2015. Through the efforts of the Board, the Department of Anthropology Excellence Endowment, supporting student and faculty research activities, has been founded and the Board is currently seeking to build this fund. In October 2016, the Board hosted an Alumni and Friends Reunion to coincide with the meeting of the Plains Anthropological Society in Lincoln, NE.
