Our purpose is to inspire a broader understanding and appreciation of the ethnic diversity and cultural heritage of our region by placing it within a global context. As an educational and research component of the Department of Anthropology, the central mission of the Museum is to train and actively involve University students in the activities of preservation, research, interpretation, and exhibition of material culture for the benefit and enrichment of the local community. The Museum's educational mission is grounded in the scholarship that is based on its collections and the stewardship of those collections. These collections are both the source and end result of the Department of Anthropology's research and educational program.
