Public Sociology Award

Public sociology has a long tradition at the University of Minnesota and we continue to provide research and council to individuals and organizations who create good and perpetuate our mission of engaged scholarship.

Our faculty and alumni have been national leaders in both public outreach and community engagement. Beginning in 2005, we formally acknowledge individuals or groups who continuously reach beyond the rigors of their research to understand the issues, events, and change that engage a wider audience. Each year, we recognize the importance of work that can engage wider audiences outside of the University's setting.
