Department Mission

The primary mission of the Sociology Department is to provide students with sociological perspectives and sociological techniques of inquiry designed to enhance their intellectual, personal, and occupational lives. Part of this mission is to offer academic programs appropriate for students with a wide variety of backgrounds in order to address the diverse needs for higher education in our community, and to provide courses that are designed to enhance individual student understanding of interactive, institutional, and macro-level aspects of our diverse world. A further aspect of the mission is to provide opportunities for students to connect sociological understandings to community experience and to enhance such understandings through service to the community. The Department mission includes the encouragement of faculty engagement in instruction, curricular development, professional activity, and governance in order to promote a strong teaching and learning environment.
