Sociology Dept. at CA Diversity Forum

UCSB recently hosted the California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education. Grad Students, Faculty and Staff from the Department of Sociology met with dozens of participants interested in applying to UCSB's Sociology Doctoral program.

The California Forums for Diversity in Graduate Education, planned by a consortium of public and private colleges and universities from throughout California, have been designed particularly to meet the needs of advanced undergraduates and master's candidates who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in doctoral-level programs. The groups include low-income and first-generation college students and especially African Americans, American Indians, Chicanos/Latinos, Filipinos, Pacific Islanders, Asian American women, and Asian American men in the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences.

Pictured below are a few of the Soc Dept members who volunteered at the recruiter tables:
