Why Support the Center for Comparative Archaeology?

Gifts to the Center for Comparative Archaeology help students outside the classroom. Your support will make it possible for:

  • Undergraduates to participate in field or laboratory research with faculty or graduate student mentors providing hands-on training focused on research design and the best ways to collect data that answer research questions.
  • Graduate students to carry out preliminary fieldwork that lays the theoretical, methodological, and practical foundations for innovative dissertation research.
  • Graduate students to broaden their global comparative vision through firsthand experience of field research in projects outside their own regions of geographic specialization.


Making a gift to the Center for Comparative Archaeology is quick and easy.
