Advising and Enrollment Information

Congratulations to the 11 Public Anthropology Award Winners at the University of Kansas in Prof. Bartholomew Dean's ANTH 160 & 162 (Varieties of Human Experience) Classes

We would like to share the names of eleven students enrolled in Varieties of Human Experience who recently won an award for their outstanding letter on climate change at the Public Anthropology national competition. In their letter, they took an informed stance on the topic and aimed at persuading others through arguments and evidence. The award-winning students are:  Mariam Rice, Brystol Bates, Lucy Whittington, Emily Kubica, Maverick Edwards, Amanda Chamness, Garrett Cleek, Rachel Lee, Benjamin Norgaard, Drayden Wood and Brett Sack.

It feels good to recognize students for their good work! In case anybody is interested, their letters are available to read at the link below.
