ABOUT US

The Sociology Graduate Student Association here at UB is committed to…

 

PROMOTING COMMUNICATION and UNDERSTANDING

 

DEFINING COMMON PROBLEMS and OBJECTIVES

 

REPRESENTING the INTERESTS of ALL SOCIOLOGY GRADUATE STUDENTS

and

FOSTERING SOCIAL EXPRESSION

 

To accomplish these goals, an elected representative of the SGSA meets with both the department graduate director and the department chair to communicate any concerns related to the curriculum, policies, and the department’s relationship to the wider community at UB.

To aid in the professional development of Sociology graduate students, the SGSA allocates funds to aid graduate students in attending and presenting at professional conferences.

A collegial environment within the department is important.  To helps sponsor this kind of relationship, the SGSA organizes informal gatherings of graduate students, department faculty and staff where all parties can interact outside of formal settings.
