Sociology Super-Department

The sociology super-department committee’s charge is to form a new multi-college Department of Sociology comprised at the core of sociologists from Sociology (College of Arts and Sciences) and Policy Analysis and Management (College of Human Ecology). The goal in bringing these groups together is to leverage common strengths, build on distinctive strengths, and develop a shared vision that furthers excellence and elevates sociology at Cornell. The committee will map out a strategic plan with input from sociology colleagues that includes short- and long-term aims focused on faculty governance, academic programming, research excellence, and the promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion across these areas. It will include recommendations for strategic investments to support the long-run excellence and impact of the new Department of Sociology.
