To the Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Human Services and Social Justice Community,

As we conclude 2021, I would like to express my warmest thoughts and best wishes for each and every one of you. Please have a safe and restful winter break! We have certainly encountered many challenges on multiple fronts, as we continue to navigate this historic time together. I am continually proud of our sociology community and the resilience that our students, staff, and faculty have demonstrated. I hope everyone takes the time to relax and enjoy this well-deserved break.

Finally, I would like to draw your attention to Ruth A. Wallace Memorial Fund which offers Sociology, CJ, and HSSJ majors and minors some modest support to students facing financial emergencies in meeting tuition or living expenses. Please send an email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Wishing you a happy and safe holiday!

How can we best prepare to fight racial discrimination in housing? Greg Squires has spent his career contributing to public and academic conversations about predatory lending, insurance redlining, and fair housing policy. On October 1, 10AM-noon, we will gather via zoom to take stock of Greg's work and to inspire the next steps in this ongoing battle. Please register here.

Our discussion on October 1 will feature leaders in the field of fair housing and racial segregation.

The guest of honor at this event, Gregory D. Squires, has literally written the book(s) on urban racial segregation. His The Fight for Fair Housing (2018, Routledge) brings together activists and scholars, as this event does, to imagine the future of fair housing. We invite the GW community and beyond to participate in a rousing and provocative discussion of where we go from here in the struggle to support vibrant, inclusive communities where the well-being of residents is valued and prioritized.

Please join us at the link below for this exciting event.

Alumni Career Programs GWebinar: What Next?: Your Five-Year Career Plan (Online) 05-27-2020 - The George Washington University 05/13/2020

Join GW alumni for a timely career webinar presented by alumna and journalist Elana Lyn Gross, CCAS BA '11, who will share how to create an actionable five-year plan for your career, whether you are in the class of 2020 or a few years out from your days on Foggy Bottom.

You can't achieve your goals if you don't know what they are and why they are important to you. The purpose of a five-year plan is to clarify what you want, why you want it, and how you'll make it happen. In this webinar, you'll learn how to do that! Elana is the author of "What Next?: Your Five-Year Plan for Life after College," which was published by the Simon & Schuster imprint Adams Media in April 2020. Following Elana's presentation, there will be a brief Q&A session.
