Dear Department of Anthropology graduate students,


I hope your summer is going well! I am writing to let you all know that for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 I will be acting graduate director while Dr. Patico takes on the role of acting department chair. Until the beginning of the semester, it would be helpful if you could direct any questions/ emails related to the graduate program to BOTH Dr. Patico and me, so that I can start to get up to speed on student concerns and needs.


For new students, I will be holding a NEW GRADUATE STUDENT ORIENTATION on August 17 from 10am-12pm, so please mark this on your calendars (I will send out reminders in August). I will also be holding extra office hours during the first week of classes (Aug 20-24) for graduate student advisement.


Enjoy the rest of the summer.


Take care,

Dr. Black
