The American Sociological Association is the national professional membership association for sociologists and others who are interested in sociology. Founded in 1905, the ASA’s mission is to serve sociologists in their work, advance sociology as a science and profession, and promote the contributions and use of sociology to society. Members include students, faculty working in a full range of institutions, and people working in government agencies and nonprofit and private sector organizations.
