Cultural/Community Engagement

The Department of Anthropology offers many opportunities for community engagement, especially among Greeley’s multicultural citizens. Our large Latino/Latina population as well as more recent immigrants from Myanmar [Burma] and Somalia create a unique environment for teaching English as a second language, working on community garden projects, and helping to organize an artisan’s cooperative; clearly there is a plethora of volunteer and/or internship opportunities, either locally or abroad.

Additionally, ANT 300: Applied Anthropology offers opportunities to work with businesses, neighborhoods, and other local projects to put anthropology to use. ANT 355: Medical Anthropology requires students to investigate and become actively involved in researching health issues in a variety of cross-cultural and/or under-served populations in northern Colorado.
