ASA encourages faculty members to invite undergraduate sociology students to apply for the 2021 Honors Program, which helps students get introduced to the professional life of the discipline. Accepted students will benefit from experiencing the virtual 2021 ASA Annual Meeting and developing long-lasting networks with sociologists. Sponsoring departments can provide a wonderful opportunity for their students to engage nationally.
Does your department offer a seminar that provides training on best teaching practices for graduate students? ASA is seeking applications for the ASA TRAILS Teaching Seminar program.
