Approaching human behavior in cross-cultural, collaborative, and innovative ways.
A Message of Solidarity from the UNLV Department of Anthropology
The members of the Department of Anthropology at UNLV share the notion that the deeply embedded forces of racism and, in particular, anti-Black racism and aggression, along with racist policies and laws, have made the US a dangerous and intolerable place for communities of color.
For those who choose to be on UNLV campus, physical access to the Anthropology Department Office will be by appointment-only until further notice. Please contact Heather Nepa, Administrative Assistant, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a specific date & time, including student lab materials pick-up and mailroom access.

Anthropology is the integrative study of human beings around the world, both present and past. Within this broad field of study, UNLV anthropology represents archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Departmental themes highlight adaptive strategies; food and nutrition; parenting, childhood, and development; and sexuality, romance, gender, and identity.
