Program Description

The Department of Anthropology is using the Innovative Programs Award to develop the LEAD (Learning Environments in Anthropology Disciplines) program.

The LEAD program is aimed at early career undergraduate students but open to all students in the Department.

The LEAD program is centered on two complementary components: LEAD Student Mentoring Groups and LEAD Critical Skills Clinics and Informational Sessions.

The LEAD program will facilitate social interactions with peers with the goal of learning from one another, promote a sense of belonging and engagement, provide additional opportunities to bolster skill building, and increase institutional knowledge including campus resources available to assist students.
