Dear Stunning Students in the Dept. of Sociology & Sexuality Studies,

As we start a new school year under unprecedented circumstances, your faculty wants to welcome you back – or anew -- to our department.

In these difficult days, we know that many of you face enormous challenges in your personal lives and communities.

We hope that pursuing your education and engaging with one another in our department will offer some bright spots.

And provide opportunities to think critically about both the causes of and solutions for the myriad of social problems that surround us.

Over the course of the fall semester, we plan to offer a few different online events for students in the department to get together.

The first will be a Zoom social hour and later on, group advising sessions and opportunities to learn about grad school and career planning.

Stay tuned for dates and details.

We also welcome your own ideas for additional ways to build community in the department.

Wishing you health, safety and social justice.



Dr. Karen Hossfeld

Associate Professor and Chair

Dept. of Sociology & Sexuality Studies
