UW-Green Bay students, faculty, and staff came together at the Sociology & Anthropology “Snack & Chat” event in the Weidner Center on Thursday to share their perspectives on a wide range of social and cultural issues that connect to the fields of Sociology and Anthropology.
Student panelists Whitney Andrastek (class of 2023) and Hannah Beauchamp-Pope (class of 2023) – both minors in Sociology & Anthropology – shared their passions for topics related to social change and addressing pressing issues facing our communities. Academic advisor Danny Panella spoke about the importance of translating academic interests in these fields into real-world experiences and offered his guidance from an advising perspective.
Professors Dana Atwood (Chair of Sociology & Anthropology), Ray Hutchison, Andrew Austin, and Christopher Kleps discussed their research, teaching, and support for the new UWGB major as faculty members active in the program. The panel discussion was moderated by Political Science Professor Alise Coen (Chair of the Public & Environmental Affairs Unit).
