Historical Note

The North Carolina Sociological Association (NCSA) was founded in 1970 to promote the welfare and advancement of the profession in the state. Towards that end, the association seeks to encourage cooperative relationships among sociologists in both academic and applied settings, and to stimulate and improve research, teaching, and discussion of sociology. Annual meetings of the NCSA provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the discussion of issues affecting the profession. Every year the association gives an Award for Contributions to Sociology and the Joseph S. Himes Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Paper.
