Welcome to the official Illinois Sociological Association (ISA) website

The ISA is the statewide association for faculty, students and practitioners of sociology in Illinois. Our primary mission is to hold an annual conference to share what we’ve learned in our research and teaching and to foster the intellectual and professional growth of our discipline. We invite all faculty and students of sociology, criminal justice, political science, communication, social work, psychology or other related disciplines to join us as members, or to submit papers for presentation at our annual conference.

For more information, contact the current ISA President, Wade P. Smith, at wpsmith@eiu.edu or the current webmaster, Kenneth Laundra, at klaundra@millikin.edu
