National Anthropology Day logoNational Anthropology Day is a day for anthropologists to celebrate and participate in their discipline with the public around them. It’s a great day to be an anthropologist! Celebrate with us at Stapleton Library anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, 2015.

Anthropologists are innovators and critical thinkers who contribute to every sector of society. In fact, it’s a great time to be an anthropologist! The skills developed through completing a degree in anthropology are useful for living and working in today’s world, which increasingly means interacting with people from many different cultural backgrounds and nations. 

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of anthropologists and archaeologists is expected to grow 19 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations.”

Anthropologists can be found in every environment and setting imaginable: Anthropologists work in deserts, cities, schools, hospitals, governments, even in underwater archaeological sites.

Help us celebrate what anthropology is and what it can achieve by visiting the anthropology table in Stapleton Library anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Thursday the 19th. Come and learn about the history of the discipline and the many diverse approaches to the study of cultures, past and present, that anthropologists take.
