Welcome to the New York State Sociological Association's webpage 

The New York State Sociological Association is a professional social science association that is dedicated to providing a space for sociologists, and those interested in sociology, to share their work and exchange ideas. We believe that the sociological perspective has much to contribute for understanding our world and promoting positive social change.

We welcome academics, professionals, students, and other interested parties to be part of our organization and exchange ideas.

How to get involved:

Our email communications keep members informed about NYSSA happenings and other state-wide opportunities for engagement. Subscribe to our mailing list below. 

The organization holds an annual meeting at a different host school each year. We are actively working to organize our 69th meeting. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the event! 

NYSSA sponsors a small, peer-reviewed journal, The New York Sociologist. Submit your research for consideration. The journal submission guidelines are on our website.

NYSSA operates solely through the service of individual sociologists. Become involved in our leadership or meeting planning by contacting the current NYSSA president, Dr. Evelyn Clark at
