The University of Manitoba Athropology Students' Association
The Common Room - N300 Duff Roblin
UMASA is the representative organization for anthropology students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, at the University of Manitoba. We are committed to encouraging and assisting anthropology students’ academic and professional progress, on and off campus. This involves promoting students’ research agendas and career development by fostering a supportive environment of peers.
Membership in UMASA is open to anyone with an interest in anthropology. The membership must be primarily students from the University of Manitoba, but is open to interested individuals outside of the institution.
As part of its activities, the UMASA organizes professional development talks, and co-organizes a colloquium series. Other events are organized with input from membership interest.
Although UMASA is guided by a volunteer executive, and has limited resources, the executive is open to suggestions and strives to do its best to help students make the most out of their time at the UofM.
In October of 2012, N300 Duff Roblin was designated as anthropology student space. Since this time, it has been filled with couches, books, a microwave, a fridge, a coffee maker and a temperamental TV. This space is intended as a casual space for students to relax, visit, and even do a little work, should the mood strike; however, please do not count on this as a quiet study space.
