Supporting Community College Faculty Across the Disciplines > Disciplinary Efforts > Sociology



The American Sociological Association (ASA) does not offer any "official" opportunities for community college faculty. Community college membership in the association is limited.
Regional and aligned associations also do not have special programs for community college faculty. The Society for the Study of Social Problems offers a scholarship to a PhD student who started at a community college. Some associations have community college representatives on their boards.


The American Sociological Association sponsors a one hour breakfast during the annual meeting. Typically this breakfast is at 7 a.m. and attendance ranges from 15 to 25 people.


There is a community college listserv [add link] for sociology but not sponsored by American Sociological Association and is rarely used.
