UW Oshkosh Sociology Mission and Vision
The UWO Sociology Department is made up of faculty and staff who are energetically and effectively engaged in teaching, research, and community building. Sociology classes are rigorous, inclusive, inspiring, and well connected to the world outside the classroom. Students develop sociological imagination while gaining enriching experiences and tangible skills that will lead to future success, the university holds the department in high regard, and the surrounding communities recognize its value.
The UWO Sociology Department provides a high quality, inclusive educational experience that challenges and prepares students to become engaged and effective members of their communities; engages in interesting and relevant scholarship; and interacts regularly with stakeholders from wider communities, producing valuable public sociology.
