The Pennsylvania Sociological Society provides a forum for communication for sociologists working in diverse settings: education, industry, government, voluntary associations, or solo practitioners; and to increase understanding of the interplay of sociological knowledge and social research. The Society also assists future sociologists in developing their careers.
