Department Council

The Department Council (DC) is responsible for academic matters specific to the Department of Sociology and its programs. In other words, it's where decisions about Sociology programs and courses get made.

All full-time faculty are members of the Department Council, as well as contract lecturer and student representatives.

Students: Join the Department Council!

  • Do you want to get to know professors and other students outside of class?
  • Do you want to have more of a say in the Sociology program?

Join us twice a term to learn more about the Sociology department and help to shape it. At the beginning of each term, all students are invited to join the DC. This is a great way to make connections and have your voice heard. For more information or to volunteer, email Dr. Jacqui Gingras, DC Chair (
