Anthropology Graduate Organization News

AGO leadership have been working since summer 2021 to revamp the organization’s direction using the Internal Assessment developed by the Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee (DISC). We see the vision of AGO as improving the well-being of anthropology graduate students at WSU. This includes:

  • Keeping students informed about department activities, budget, and deadlines
  • Planning and facilitating both professional and social events
  • Improving camaraderie between graduate students and undergraduates

This year we made great progress toward our goals by having a back-to-school BBQ held at Kamiak County Park. Throughout the remainder of the year, we will also hold a series of Careers in Anthropology talks and a Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

If you have any suggestions for helping us meet these goals, please let us know by contacting AGO president Darcy Bird or by anonymously submitting to the suggestions box on the AGO website.
