The symposium is a chance for undergraduates from across the region who have interests in sociology, criminology/criminal justice, gender studies, LGBTQ studies, black studies/Pan-African studies, and interdisciplinary work within the broad field of the social sciences to showcase their scholarly work. The conference will provide students with an opportunity to present their work through a poster, a panel session, or a roundtable.

Specific goals of the symposium include:

  • Promote professionalism within the discipline
  • Encourage close collaborations between students and faculty
  • Provide networking opportunities for students with other undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty from over 70 invited colleges and universities

We aim to provide students from two-year institutions, community colleges, and four-year institutions an opportunity to talk with and work with students from a variety of institutions.

Members of the NEO-USS steering committee come from many institutions in Northeast Ohio including: Lakeland Community College, Hiram College, Oberlin College, Slippery Rock University, Kent State University, Cuyahoga Community College, and University of Akron.
