Sociology Centennial Fund

Help us celebrate the first 100 years of Sociology at UNC and continue our tradition of excellence in the next 100 years by making a gift to the Sociology Centennial Fund. Gifts to this fund are used to support innovative teaching and research opportunities for students and faculty.
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 are not 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.

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.
