AART : Anthropology, Archaeology, Research, & Technology Club

Our Mission

We aim to introduce anthropological and archaeological concepts in a fun and interesting manner that encourages discussion relating to its real world application. Providing a safe and welcoming environment, anyone and everyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of anthropology, archaeology, research and technology is encouraged to join, no matter their academic background. Through activities resembling work done by anthropologists and/or archaeologists, we introduce our club members to common concepts and practices in the field. We're passionate about making a welcoming environment for those interested in AART, and wish to make it accessible and easy to understand for everyone.

Purpose Statement

To provide a space for those interested in anthropologically related activities, and encourage networking opportunities within the greater field of anthropology. Additionally, this organization will serve as supplemental instruction to the Anthropology department.
