Campus Campaign: Celebrate. Engage. Inspire.

The American Anthropological Association (AAA) is celebrating anthropology and anthropologists around the world through Anthropology Day. Anthropologists are innovators and creative thinkers who contribute to every sector of society. 

About Anthropology Day

Anthropology Day is a day for anthropologists to celebrate and share their discipline with the public around them. Activities on campuses around the world will build enthusiasm and awareness for current and future anthropologists. Please note that due to the ongoing pandemic, we will not be distributing ‘swag boxes’ for in-person celebrations. We do, however, have a host of resources and ideas to help you get started for your AnthroDay events. We encourage you to host a virtual or safe and socially distanced event to mark the day.

How to get involved:

We welcome your participation in any capacity. The exciting part about our effort is that it requires no fundraising and focuses solely on public education and having fun with anthropology. In other words, this is a great opportunity for a class or student group to take a leadership role in raising awareness about anthropology!
