- serving as liaison between students, faculty, and staff with ideas and concerns related to equity, diversity, and inclusion
- offering information and resources to students, staff, and faculty to foster a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive campus, and

Sociology Community Scholarship Available!
The Department of Sociology prides itself on being one of the most diverse undergraduate majors at the University of Utah. Many of our highest achieving students come from historically underrepresented groups. Students from these backgrounds have surmounted great odds to succeed in their college careers and they face many challenges, especially financial ones, as they strive to complete their degrees. The Sociology Department is collaborating with alumni and supportive members of our community to provide the Sociology Community Scholarship.
