The department has standing committees of faculty and staff that change each year. The committees address administrative issues, the undergraduate program, the graduate program, and outreach.
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Recruitment and Retention Committee (BIPOC RRC)
BIPOC RRC works to recruit and retain a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff; to monitor and improve racial climate; and to seek out and secure resources that will help BIPOC students flourish in our program.
The Sociology Graduate Student Association (SGSA) aims to create an inclusive and supportive environment for graduate students and every member of the department
The goal of this committee is to provide a clearly defined, easily accessible mechanism for addressing issues or incidents that negatively impact department climate.
