COVID-19 Message

As a Department, we are committed to helping our staff, students and faculty find ways to navigate the unprecedented crisis that the Global COVID-19 Pandemic has brought upon us all. Knowing that many in our community will be facing serious challenges in the days, weeks, and months to come we hope that we can find ways to support each other in these uncertain times. As anthropologists, our community not only consists of students and faculty here at UCLA, but also the communities, organizations, and individuals with whom we collaborate and partner. We want to recognize the unique challenges and concerns that the COVID-19 pandemic brings.
