Giving to Sociology

Why Giving Matters

The Department of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin is one of the largest and most highly ranked Sociology departments in the country. Its outstanding group of 37 tenured or tenure-track faculty members offers an excellent range of opportunities - both inside and outside the classroom - for undergraduate and graduate students. The 2017 US News and World Report Guide to Graduate Departments ranked UT Austin Sociology 6th among public universities, and tied for 11th among all universities.

This achievement has been possible only through the combined efforts of faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the Department. The strength of the Department depends directly on recruiting world-class students and faculty, and affording them the opportunities to further develop and present their research in a variety of national and international conferences and settings. Alumni and friends play a key role in furnishing the Department with support that state funding cannot otherwise provide.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you and seek your guidance in assisting the Department, and thank you sincerely for your support.
