Your generosity makes it possible for us to deal with present needs and to plan for the future.



Most of us give money to the institutions where we got our degrees, especially if we feel a special bond with the department where we spent the most time, and where we expended the most intellectual energy. These contributions are meaningful because they resonate with our positive memories of learning, thinking, and becoming who we now are, intellectually. We hope you feel a special bond with the Sociology Department! We hope you remember eye-opening classes and professors who challenged you to think differently about a variety of topics!

If you choose to contribute to our departmental foundation, your money will enable us to do a variety of things, including: engage in outreach efforts to recruit new faculty and graduate students; hold departmental functions such as public lectures; and continue to publicize the work of our faculty and students. Your assistance will help us to do the work we need to do to improve as a department – further enhancing the value of your diploma from GSU. All contributors, regardless of the amount of the contribution, will be recognized as benefactors in SOCIOPATH.
