Sociology Snippets – February 20, 2020
|Hello Sociology Majors!
Does it ever feel like sociology is a bit of a downer? Well, this week we have some good Valentine’s Day themed good news for you. According to Sociology professor Philip Cohen divorce is on the decline – you can see his research here:https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2378023119873497. It’s not all bad news!
This week in Soc Snippets we have some publication and job opportunities.
As always have a great day and Go Ducks!

Since 2011, the Undergraduate Research Symposium has hosted more than 2,000 students and served as a signature moment for undergraduates to present their original research and creative work to the campus and local community. The 2019 Symposium welcomed 513 presenters and 290 faculty mentors representing 75 majors from every UO school and college.
This year we will also be joined by local high school students and teachers in collaboration with the Summer Academy to Inspire Leadership (SAIL); Lane Community College (LLC) students and faculty (including a transfer student panel); and McNair Scholars students from the UO and programs across the Pacific Northwest.

Work with SAIL this Summer
Summer staff work full time during our training week July 13-16 and our two program weeks July 20-24 & July 27-31.
The University of Oregon’s Summer Academy to Inspire Learning (SAIL) program is an innovative pre-college program hosted on the University of Oregon campus. Serving middle and high school students from underrepresented backgrounds, including lower income and/or first-generation college students, SAIL empowers students to enroll and succeed in college through early exposure and exploration.
SAIL offers free, one-week summer programs on the University of Oregon campus, where students can choose from a wide variety of subject areas like Biology, Performing Arts, World Languages and more, all taught by distinguished University of Oregon faculty volunteers through fun social and interactive activities. SAIL programs also include sessions on college admissions, the financial aid process, and scholarships, as well as opportunities to bond with like-minded peers through team-building and leadership activities.SAIL Hiring Slide.pdf
While in D.C., scholars work with the larger PNPI team to create high-quality learning experiences for current and prospective federal higher education policymakers, draft content for the PNPI website, engage in research on postsecondary issues, and attend D.C. based policy events. The goal of the program is to provide scholars with an opportunity to build their knowledge base and their network in federal higher education policy. In their final evaluations of the program, all of our scholars have credited PNPI with expanding their understanding of federal higher education policy, exposing them to new career paths, and impacting their long-range career goals. They also credited us with instilling in them greater confidence and a higher level of comfort in professional circles.
