The earliest recorded sociology course taught on UNL’s campus was offered in 1884. With such a long and storied history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the department of sociology continues to be a leading center of sociology in the Midwest.
Currently, the 20 faculty members that comprise the faculty are responsible for the education of approximately 40 graduate and 200 undergraduate students. With the belief that
a strong research programs serves as a critical foundation for excellence in teaching and student engagement, the department has an outstanding tradition of quality research and teaching. Six members of the department have won Distinguished Teaching Awards from the College of Arts and Sciences and one department faculty member was recognized with the University of Nebraska’s highest teaching award, the Outstanding Teaching and Instructional Creativity Award. The thrust of research is focused on family, social inequality, and the sociology of health/mental health.
Private support is critical in funding the ambitious research and teaching agenda of the department, and we are humbled to be considered as a home for your philanthropy.
This fund provides scholarships to undergraduate students within the Sociology Department with preference given to students who come from educationally or culturally disadvantaged backgrounds.
A gift to this fund would help support a multitude of activities within the Sociology Department.
Currently there are no other funds available for this area.
