AGUA: Anthropology Graduate Students at the University of Arizona


 

WHAT IS AGUA?

The Anthropology Graduate Students at the University of Arizona (AGUA) is a graduate student organization that promotes cooperation and cohesion among anthropology graduate students, the exchange of ideas across the sub-fields within our department, and provides a forum for discussing student concerns and taking action to address these concerns.

The mission of AGUA is to operate as the connective tissue that links the activities, interests and events of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona. An organization run exclusively by graduate students, AGUA’s primary mission is to develop cohesion among its constituents and promote and foster academic excellence for the various parties with which it interfaces. In addition to liaising between the faculty and students, AGUA’s other primary function consists of promoting networking among graduate students among the four sub-disciplines (archaeology, biocultural, cultural, and linguistic anthropology) and bringing in distinguished scholars from all over the academic world to speak and share their scholarship. Events like the AGUA Lecture Series, AGUA Annual Picnic and Professionalization Workshops are the central nodes around which the trajectory of AGUA is based and each year we strive to replicate and build on the excellence of the previous cohort.
