Our Faculty and Staff

The faculty members in the Sociology Department are active in local, national, and international networks. They produce books, articles, and reports on a wide range of social issues, some addressing social policy, and others trying to further “knowledge for knowledge’s sake.” Topics include environmentalism, homelessness, health care, and educational change.
