Due to concerns about COVID-19 and the goal to increase social distancing, the Department of Anthropology is closed to faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Services will continue remotely and we are currently working through the transition. We will continue responding to inquiries, focusing on the most urgent issues first. However, please allow for additional response time and know that we are working as hard as we can to help. We appreciate your patience during this transitional time and encourage you to visit Trent’s website for further information and FAQs regarding COVID-19.
