Who We Are
We are an interdisciplinary community of scholars, practitioners, advocates, and students interested in the application of critical, scientific, and humanistic perspectives to the study of vital social problems.
What Our Members Say
As a graduate student in the ‘80s, I quickly developed a fond appreciation of the respectful and progressive space that the SSSP offers young professionals. Thirty years later, I remain deeply engaged in this truly unique association. As social scientists and practitioners, we focus on the structural roots of social problems to confront their underlying causes and the system which reproduces them. If you identify with the larger struggle for social justice, I invite you to join the SSSP to help us “occupy” the social sciences and transform social practice.

2012 Approved Resolutions
SSSP resolutions constitute an important opportunity for our scholar-activist membership to publicly declare its sentiments, thereby creating a channel for greater visibility and more direct influence upon various “publics” (e.g. fellow activists, scholars, students, voters, groups, policy- and decision-makers).
This year, three resolutions were approved at the SSSP Business Meeting on Friday, August 17: Resolution 1: Service Sociology; Resolution 2: Unsolved Homicide Cases; and Resolution 3: Expression of Gratitude.
