The Sociology program at Southern Illinois University received the Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS) Seal of Approval for Faculty Gender Equity (over 40% of our faculty are women -- actually, we are 50/50); and Gender Scholarship (at least 25% of our faculty name gender or gender inequality among our specialties). We are among 22 other doctoral programs to receive both of these distinctions.
