Who Are We?

S.T.E.P (Sociologists Together Empowering People), the Sociology club at the University of San Francisco, was established in Spring 2011. S.T.E.P.'s main purpose is to create solidarity among individuals interested in sociology. The Club hopes to build a campus community for current and prospective Sociology majors and minors by providing students opportunities to network; to acquire information about graduate schools, internships, and jobs; and to build professional relationships with fellow students and faculty. S.T.E.P also aims to increase student civic engagement and promote social justice on campus and in our communities. Everyone is welcome to attend meetings and participate in the Club's activities.

In Spring 2014, the club meets every other Thursday from 11:45 to 12:30. Please check the facebook page (below) to find out the location.
