The NIU Sociology Graduate Colloquium is held each year with the financial support of the Graduate School. Graduate students play a significant role in organizing the talks. We have been fortunate to bring prominent sociologists to speak on their current research. These talks are informative and offer important intellectual exchange opportunities. These events are free and open to the entire campus and the public.
More information about the Graduate School Colloquium Program can be found here.
