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 the region.
We aim to provide students from two-year institutions, community colleges and area high schools an opportunity to talk with and work with sociology majors from four-year institutions. This symposium will also create an environment where undergraduate students gain access to graduate students and faculty from diverse institutions.
Members of the NEO-USS steering committee come from many institutions in Northeast Ohio including; Lakeland Community College, Hiram College, Kent State University, Ohio Northern University, Cuyahoga Community College, Lorain Community College and Youngstown State University.
