Alumni and Friends

Continue the connection

Our alumni are a large part of continuing our program, adding value and experience to the knowledge we share with students. We want to hear about your personal and professional accomplishments because your success is our success. Also, alumni are a great resource for practicum and internship experiences, helping the next generation of our students. Contact the sociology program with updates about your personal and professional achievements so we can celebrate with you. If you are already a member of the Alumni Association, make sure to update us when you move with the address update form.
