A group fo students holding out signs that spell out Thank You by the letter

Your gift to the Department of Sociology can transform the experiences of our students and faculty.

A gift to the Department of Sociology will help us further our mission of doing cutting-edge research with potential to improve the human condition. A gift also helps us to develop innovative programs to provide students with hands-on research experience that can open doors for future professional or academic goals.  Here are a few ways that a contribution will help our department:

  • Sponsor lectures and discussion with world-class scholars, enhancing the educational experience of our students.
  • Provide support for graduate and undergraduate researchers, and help them present their work at professional conferences.
  • Offer a seed grant to launch a new faculty research project, which can open the door to larger federal or foundation grants to support a graduate student or postdoctoral research collaborator.
  • Establish a permanent fund that provides financial assistance to undergraduate and graduate students with unexpected financial needs.

Every gift counts, and will help create a new generation of scholars, teachers, and practitioners.
