Faculty and Staff

The Sociology faculty are deeply committed to high quality undergraduate teaching. Since we do not have a graduate program, undergraduates are our only focus. Therefore, we offer a welcoming, student-centered atmosphere, and our students typically tell us how much they appreciate the attention Sociology faculty and staff show them inside and outside the classroom.

We would like to Welcome new faculty who will be joining us in September 2020: Michael Haedicke, PhD in sociology with a focus on the environmental; and Brian Pitman, PhD in Criminology & Criminal Justice.

Note that during COVID, our faculty are not in their offices, but are quite available though email. Our adjuncts for the most part do not have offices in Fernald Hall and over the summer few of our faculty are here. Please send an email and make an appointment if you need to contact our faculty or instructors. Thanks!
