The mission of the Department of Anthropology is to achieve excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, maintain active research, and engage in service activities within the university and public sector.
Our Department includes the Applied Anthropology Laboratories, which expands student education beyond the classroom through practical experience in the application of technical and scientific anthropological knowledge. The Department is committed to quality and ethically responsible research and scholarship and strongly encourage innovative and collaborative research and teaching initiatives within the Department and beyond. We emphasize how anthropology can promote a greater understanding of human diversity in the University and public communities.
During One Ball State Day, we hope to generate contributions to our Troyer Endowment. The Troyer Endowment has two components. The Troyer Scholarship, named after benefactor Byron Troyer, is applied toward tuition or other expenses. The Troyer Grant, named for Byron’s spouse, Iona Troyer, is for student professional development. These funds are used to support numerous Anthropology undergraduate and graduate students who have benefited from the generosity of our donors.
