We plan to connect to our alumni in order to establish a permanent speaker series and to help sustain our computer lab and our funding for essential research materials.
We have maintained a strong relationship with many alumni. We hope to continue this and focus our fundraising to provide a stable endowment for bringing in scholarly speakers to enhance our research environment.
In addition to raising an endowment for a speaker series, we plan to target our fundraising to build a research fund to purchase datasets, replace hardware, and provide essential software for our computer lab and for faculty and graduate students.
The Department of Sociology sincerely appreciates the generous contributions of our alumni and other friends. We value every contribution we receive, as it supports the academic progress of our talented and hardworking students! Thank You.
