Mission of the Pacific Sociological Association (adopted October 9, 2020)
The Pacific Sociological Association is committed to serving sociologists in our region–faculty, applied professionals, and students—by providing opportunities for networking and professional development designed to advance scholarly research, promote high-quality teaching and mentorship, and encourage applied sociology for the public good. We strive to create a professional community that reflects the diversity of our region and enhances the diversity of our discipline. We are committed to inclusivity and equity in our organization, to promoting social justice by examining and challenging the structural and institutional barriers in our discipline, and to building pathways for the next generation of sociologists.
Members of the Pacific Sociological Association subscribe to and are bound by the Code of Ethics of the American Sociological Association. (by April 11, 2008 action by PSA governing Council).
