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 engagement 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, UMASA organizes social events, 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.
