Our Commitment to U

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Utah is committed to creating and fostering an equitable, inclusive and diverse community within our department and campus as a whole. We acknowledge that inequities exist based upon race/ethnicity, gender identity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, class, culture, religion, age and ability. And although the discipline of Anthropology has long been committed to understanding, appreciating and respecting all human cultures, we further acknowledge that historically, the field has at times contributed to and reinforced structures that have subjected communities of people to objectification, marginalization, colonialism and racism. As anthropologists, we renew our commitment to respecting and valuing all human experiences and to preserving the uniqueness of populations. Within our own community, we pledge to dedicate ourselves to the important work of creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.

To this end, we invite you to explore this webpage to view specific tools, resources, and courses available to those interested in more information. We welcome all engaged, motivated, curious community members who want to connect across
familiarity and difference. We invite student-driven proposals to celebrate diversity or improvethe college.
