Alpha Kappa Delta
Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) is the international sociology honor society for undergraduate students majoring in sociology. The society sponsors student travel to regional meetings, helps with scholarly presentations and provides learning opportunities from speakers and from the scholarly presentations of others. The national honors society sponsors annual student paper contests, presenting awards which include monetary prizes, travel support and scholarships. For more information, contact the Sociology and Anthropology department.
The purpose of the Sociology Club is to cultivate students' sociological imagination, which involves the ability to understand how individual and group behavior is shaped by society's historical development and how personal problems are connected to public issues and how to work with others to improve social conditions. This imagination promotes critical thinking skills, which are essential for effective participation in professional, personal and public affairs. The Sociology Club interacts with the community as well, by volunteering with and helping non-profit organizations. For more information, contact Dr. Lisa Hall.
