Dear Anthropology Alumni,

One of the goals of the UMass Amherst Anthropology Alumni Advisory Board is to provide guidance and support for the outstanding programs offered by the Anthropology Department. We’d like to ensure that today’s anthropology students continue to have access to programs such as:
• European Field Studies
• Archaeological Field School
• The Certificate Program in Native American Indian Studies
• UMass Amherst Alliance for Community Transformation (UACT)
• Violence and Trauma Studies Certificate Program

Your input about how you think the Department and the Alumni Board can best serve your needs is very important to us, and we will certainly share the survey results.

We look forward to hearing from you and reviewing your creative ideas for connecting with each other and engaging with your Anthropology Department. We hope you will stay in touch, particularly with regard to our upcoming 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Department in 2009!

Best regards,

Elizabeth S. Chilton, PhD ‘96
Chair, Department of Anthropology
