Meet student leader Kyla Cangiano

Nipissing students consistently impress as leaders, in the classroom, on campus and in the community.  Recently the university celebrated 25 student leaders at the annual Dave Marshall Leadership Awards.  Over the coming months, NU News will introduce each student leader to the wider community with a short article discussing their accomplishments and activities. Today, we are pleased profile Kyla Cangiano, who is working toward an arts degree, with specialization in anthropology.Cangiano is an exceptional student, researcher, presenter and research assistant. She has presented research at both national and international academic conferences, including the 2017 Undergraduate Research Conference, the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, and the Canadian Anthropology Society Conference, and has recently had an abstract of her thesis accepted to be presented at the Society for Applied Anthropology/Canadian Anthropology Society, an international conference to be held in Cuba this spring.
Cangiano shows exceptional skill as a researcher; she keeps detailed and insightful field notes, is able to build rapport with participants in both field and interview contexts, has navigated the ethics review processes, and has demonstrated the ability to make the leap from observation to interpretation in her writing.
Inquisitive, steadfast, reliable and thoughtful in her work,Cangiano’s passion for anthropology is contagious. When not engaged in research, she is actively seeking out new opportunities for learning, whether through department speaker series’ events or her own additional reading. As co-president of the Sociology and Anthropology Society,Cangiano has brought awareness of Anthropology as a discipline, to the broader campus community. There is no doubt that she has contributed significantly to the quality of the anthropology program at Nipissing University.
The university community is proud to recognize Cangiano with a Dave Marshall Leadership Award in the Academic Category. ?
