Sacramento Anthropological Society

Welcome to the Sacramento Anthropological Society Homepage! SAS promotes both academic and social exchange between students, faculty, and alumni. Membership is open to all anthropology students, faculty, alumni, and the public. SAS's primary goal is to provide an organizational framework under which individuals can pursue a wide variety of locally sponsored anthropological activities.

SAS provides sponsorship for: local anthropological conferences, guest lecturers, student and faculty meet and greet socials, research projects, publishing, and the occasional field trip. Ongoing and open meetings throughout the school year provide a ready mechanism for joining in these activities. If your interests lay in any one of the four fields of anthropology and you are looking for a place to participate, we welcome your participation.

SAS is governed each academic year by a group of elected student officials with faculty advisors.

The officers for the academic year Fall 2014- Spring 2015 are:

Tim Ryan, President

Kiersten Baker, Vice President

Hannah Robins, Secretary

Yesenia Ontiveros, Treasurer

The current SAS constitution can be found here.
