The Benefits of SSSP Membership

There are many benefits that come with a SSSP membership. Perhaps no other professional organization is as committed to tackling contemporary social problems and redefining historical social facts as the SSSP. Our community of activist scholars places a priority on supporting not only emerging scholarship, but on supporting graduate students and junior scholars. For many respected senior scholars, SSSP was the first organization that actively supported their work by inviting them into a dynamic community of individuals dedicated to activist scholarship. Membership provides access to this welcoming community of individuals who do rigorous, groundbreaking social research. Through our annual meetings, our highly regarded journal, Social Problems, and other important SSSP publications, SSSP has shared new knowledge and developed myriad working partnerships and professional friendships for over 60 years. Consider joining us in this worthwhile endeavor by becoming a member or renewing your membership today! https://www.sssp1.org/index.cfm/m/255/fuseaction/ssspmember.portal
