arizona state university partners

At the heart of the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, the ASU Museum of Anthropology occupies a unique space not only in one of the most historic buildings on campus but also intellectually. We partner with faculty, who are among the top social scientists in the country, whose cutting-edge research provides our exhibit themes. Graduate students in the museum studies program use the museum as their laboratory to interpret, design and develop unique and interactive exhibitions.

We also draw from the vast archaeological, ethnographic, scientific and other collections maintained by the university.
