Mosaic of ASA members' race, reflecting diversity in terms of race, age, gender, religion, and parental status


The ASA is dedicated to serving sociologists in their work, advancing sociology as a science and profession, and promoting the contributions and use of sociology to society. Any individual interested in these objectives is eligible for membership in the ASA. Much of the vitality of the ASA flows from its diverse membership. With this in mind, it is the policy of the ASA to engage, recruit, include and acknowledge people of color, women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons, persons with disabilities, persons from all types of educational institutions--ranging from research intensive universities to community colleges and high schools, persons from all types of employment statuses, persons who work in government, business, or other applied settings, and international scholars in all of its programmatic activities and in the business of the Association.
