Welcome to the 1st Annual Social Action Student Symposium (SASSy)! This year's online showcase reflects the diversity of student research within the School of Social Sciences and includes course projects, graduate theses, and professional presentations.
Many students also presented their work live in a lightning talk session on April 9, 2021. We look forward to presenting new student work that illustrates how the social sciences contribute to social justice research and advocacy next Spring. Information about when and how to apply will be available next fall.
