We’re here for you—even when we aren’t here!

Stay Strong Penn

The Anthropology Department is operating remotely until further notice:

-All staff will be available via phone and email during their regular hours (see below) as well as for meetings via Zoom, phone, etc.

-The department offices will not be staffed. We anticipate that mail will not be brought up to the department or sorted and strongly encourage everyone to minimize mail and package delivery.

-Access to the museum building will be strictly limited and require prior approval from museum security. If something urgent requires you to come in to the Department, please contact Ariel well in advance and we will do our best to help.


Student Remote IT Support:

-Penn students now have access to 24/7 IT support. If students have questions about remote access including questions about Canvas, BlueJeans and Zoom, they can contact Student IT Support at 855-249-3243 (Toll-free),
