People - Mentor Network

To aid UW Anthropology students in exploring educational and career opportunities, we have started a mentoring network comprised of UW Anthropology alumni, including many who live and work in the Seattle area. Our mentors have valuable and unique experiences and perspectives that can benefit current students, especially those hoping to gain insights from professional anthropologists pursuing a variety of academic and non-academic careers.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Catherine Zeigler at czeigler@uw.edu.
