The Divisions provide an excellent opportunity to get involved in your particular area of interest. Individual divisions may have additional resources and information published on their division website.

SSSP’s mission includes advancing sociological research while also promoting the contributions and uses of sociology in society. This site will showcase members' non-peer reviewed writings, legislative testimony, media appearances, podcasts, op-eds, letters to the editor, and blog writings in local, state, national, and international arenas.

Allow us to highlight and celebrate your recent achievements in the public square. Please email the relevant information, including links, to the GRA & Webmaster at ssspgra@utk.edu.

*Works will remain posted for 3 months.
