The award was established to recognize and reward chapter achievement in fulfilling the general purposes of Alpha Kappa Delta: to acknowledge and promote excellence in scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition.

The award would normally be presented at the annual American Sociological Association conference, but due to the pandemic, there will be no in-person ceremony this year.

“This award speaks to the excellence of our students and our chapter’s commitment to promoting sociology,” said Pina Holway, assistant professor of sociology and the faculty advisor and chapter representative.
