The Anthropology Club is an organization of students and faculty whose purpose is to promote cultural awareness and understanding, encourage professionalism, provide opportunities for professional exploration, promote and encourage the study of anthropology, educate the community on the contribution of anthropology, and become involved in campus and community cross-cultural events.
Traditionally the club has participated in the community by providing volunteer services in both the natural and human environment. Past projects vary from the Boise River Cleanup to Community Education at the local K-12 level. Projects are driven by student interest and involvement. The club has also worked with the Department of Anthropology in sponsoring guest speakers from many areas in the social sciences, as well as individual students attending and presenting research papers at professional conferences.
The Anthropology Club strives to promote cultural awareness and understanding, encourage professionalism and provide opportunities for professional exploration in the study of anthropology. Class officers are elected to one-year terms. Any member of the organization may seek office. The faculty encourages and expects student participation. The club not only provides informative programs, but also an opportunity for students to interact and exchange ideas.
Students interested in the Anthropology Club should send one of the club officers listed an email or attend one of the club meetings.
Announcements of meetings or other events are usually mailed, circulated in classes, posted on the Anthropology Department bulletin board, emailed through the Anthropology Department mailing list, or posted here on the Anthropology Club web page.[/one_third]

Orgsync is a social media hub dedicated to students and organizations. I strongly recommend joining our club through orgsync because that is where all the forms for travel/funding are located and easiest mass communication tools are found.
Being involved with club activities is a great way to stay engaged on a professional and personal note. If you have any further questions please email any of the officers who are located on the department page sspa.boisestate.edu/anthropology
We look forward to a fun and engaging year with lots of plans and activities.
