Kozaitis Praxis Award

"In establishing anthropological praxis as a core focus of GSU’s Department of Anthropology, I sought to cultivate anthropology as a humanistic social science and a humane profession that advances social justice within and beyond higher education."

- Dr. Kathryn A. Kozaitis

The Kozaitis Praxis award celebrates the legacy of a professor emerita, Kathryn Kozaitis, whose decades of service have inspired countless students and faculty members alike. With a focus on praxis anthropology, this award aims to support students dedicated to using anthropology to advance social transformation and justice.

Through your generous support, we seek to establish this award as a testament to the transformative power of anthropology in action. By fostering a community of scientists and scholars committed to collaborative research and ethical engagement with partner communities, we empower our students to understand, interpret and address the many forms of social and economic inequity that affect those groups and to advocate for community-informed visions of social change.

By honoring Dr. Kozaitis, we can ensure that the spirit of praxis anthropology thrives, leaving a legacy of positive change in academia and beyond. Join us in supporting this vital initiative and help shape the future of anthropology for generations to come.

With your gift to this project, the Georgia State University Foundation will establish the Kozaitis Praxis Award. When the project reaches its goal of $25,000, the award will be endowed.
