 August 2014 GAS Calendar


The Graduate Association of Sociologists (GAS) is a student organization set up to promote the personal, professional, and academic development of graduate sociology students. GAS also provides a forum for graduate sociology students to discuss their collective concerns.  In this capacity GAS functions to:


GAS meets once a month to discuss any questions, comments or concerns of the students. Meetings are open to any student who wishes to raise a question or bring an issue to the attention of GAS members. Meeting times for the Fall 2014 are to be determined.


GAS is proud to offer a limited amount of travel assistance for presenters and attendees of professional conferences. Both presenters and attendees need to submit a reimbursement form and receipts for conference registration. Additionally, presenters will need to submit a receipt for membership and a photocopy of your presentation(s) from the conference program.
Application for Reimbursement

Applicants are encouraged first to apply to funds from the Graduate School.


GAS organizes a variety of casual and professional social events throughout the year. Typical events include an annual Fall Welcome Picnic, Town Hall Q&A with the department chair, holiday parties, brown bag lunches, post-colloquium ‘happy hours’ and celebratory end-of-the-semester dinners. If you have an idea for an event, please contact a GAS member.


Join our Facebook group to keep abreast of the latest social and professional news of your fellow students.
