Summary

The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center was created in 1983 to advance and share knowledge of the human experience through archaeological research, education programs, and partnerships with American Indians. Since its creation, over 70,000 students and adults have participated in the Center’s innovative experiential education, research, and travel programs. Crow Canyon’s programs vary in a number of ways in order to highlight different aspects of its tripartite mission. In 2015, Crow Canyon launched its first college accredited archaeological field school. This poster presents information on how the Center’s mission influenced the unique development of the field school’s graduate and undergraduate curriculum and, in turn, how it is anticipated to influence students entering the discipline. This poster provides information on curricula utilized during Crow Canyon’s field school that promotes archaeological ethics, public outreach, independent research, collaboration with descendant communities, multi-vocal learning, and service learning in addition to traditional archaeological method and theory provided in field and laboratory settings.
