Lauren Townshend

Administrative Services Manager


I provide administrative support to students, faculty and staff in the Anthropology Department. My responsibilities include overall management of the department, coordination of finances, and monitoring and implementation of course schedule entry and enrollment. I supervise our staff and student workers and work closely with the Department Chair. I also maintain the anthropology website, and produce and distribute the annual department newsletter.

I began my career at Western Washington University in 2015 as the Program Assistant and Undergraduate Advisor for the Department.
