Alpha Kappa Delta
This international honor society was established in 1920 by University of Southern California sociologist Emory S. Bogardus. Its purposes are stimulating scholarship and promoting the scientific study of society.
The Sharpe Community Scholars Program strives to support the development of select first-year students through the integration of academic studies, community-based research and community engagement. Students learn to take on challenges that promote transformative social and structural change.
The Jeanne A. Ito Award
This award is given annually at commencement to recognize a graduating sociology major who demonstrates the love of sociology, scholarship, and service that characterized our student and colleague for whom the award is named. The award includes recognition on a plaque that hangs in the Department office, a personalized plaque presented to the recipient from the department, and a modest cash disbursement.
The R. Wayne Kernodle Award (formerly the Spencer and Ruth Timm Fund)
This award is intended to support student work that enhances undergraduate education and an appreciation of the value of sociological understandings. Students who are considering internships, research expereinces, or academically relevant travel--especially during the summer months--should discuss their ideas with a faculty member or the department chair. Students may apply for consideration by sending the department chair a letter that outlines the project or travel and the associated costs.
