Panels and Workshops
To learn more about the Department of Sociology at UNC Chapel Hill, and life as a graduate student, we’re offering several panels and workshops during our Virtual Visiting Days. These sessions will take place on Zoom. You will be asked to enter a passcode to join and placed into the waiting room upon entering. This passcode will be emailed directly to you by the Graduate Student Services Manager, Kira Jones, prior to Virtual Visiting Days.
Don’t forget! Whenever you join Zoom, check that your name is appearing how you want it to and then please add your pronouns and “new admit.” For Example: Kira J. (she/they, new admit).
