The Department of Anthropology is very pleased to introduce our new Business Manager, Jocelyn Janicek, who joined the department in February 2020. As Business Manager, Jocelyn carries out numerous responsibilities to ensure the department’s success. These roles include providing support to the Department Chair, overseeing fiscal responsibilities for the department as fiscal officer, providing budget oversight and administrative support for grant administration (both pre-award and post-award), managing maintenance and renovation of Anthropology’s spaces, supervising issuance of technology and essential work-related equipment, and managing administrative personnel while also overseeing the human resource aspect of the department. Jocelyn is certainly instrumental in contributing to the important work that the Anthropology staff does.

Prior to joining the Department of Anthropology, Jocelyn worked in various MSU departments and/or units, pursuing her career within the MSU community since 2014. Jocelyn’s previous work includes experience in research, accounting, human resources, and the reform and creation of campus policies.

Jocelyn is thrilled to be a part of the Anthropology team and work in this department. Although the remote situation brought on by the pandemic left her to meet most of the Anthropology faculty and students virtually, she looks forward to meeting everyone in person when we return to campus.

In Jocelyn’s free time, she likes spending time with her family and animals and going off-roading. She has two horses, with whom she enjoys trail riding, and two very lovable dogs. Jocelyn also enjoys traveling in her off-road vehicle with her partner.
