Each year, Sociology recognizes outstanding students with the David Fullam Social Justice Award and the Sociological Imagination Award.
The David Fullam Social Justice Award is named in honor of David Fullam, a professor of sociology who retired in 1999. It is given to a Sociology major or minor who best exemplifies a commitment to equity and social justice through service to their community.
The Sociological Imagination Award is open to the top five majors, based on GPA, who have completed at least 90 credits. They are invited to submit a piece of written work to the Department faculty for review. The Department selects the recipient of the Award from those who submit work.
