Below is a description of the Department of Sociology funds.  Thank you for your gift to the Department of Sociology at Carolina!

Carolina Sociology Fund for Faculty Excellence

This fund is used to provide sociology faculty with critically needed funds for travel, research materials, technology and other resources necessary to their pursuits as world-class scholars and educators.

General Gift Fund

Gifts to this fund are used at the discretion of the Chair and are directed to where the need is greatest. Such discretionary funds are used to support ongoing programs, activities, initiatives, and special events that aren’t funded by state dollars or that require the use of non-University funds. For example, these funds are used for maintaining and improving our technological infrastructure, including our computer lab and audiovisual equipment. Discretionary funds can also be used for activities that help establish and reaffirm a sense of community among the faculty, staff and students within the department, creating venues for intellectual engagement and opportunities that strengthen and encourage collegiality. At the undergraduate level, such funds help bolster student-group activities, and enhance the teaching experience more generally.

Planned Giving

We greatly appreciate all support towards these funds and we also want to work with our alumni and friends. If you are interested in creating a fund of your own, possibly in honor or memory of someone, or even in establishing a fund for the department in your estate plans, we would love to be of assistance.
