The Virginia Social Science Association is the oldest association of academics in Virginia.
We are comprised of scholars from multiple social disciplines.

Bringing students and scholars together

All institutions of higher education in Virginia, undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals who apply the social sciences. We envision three main interrelated missions regarding teaching, research, and outreach:

  • promoting multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work in the social sciences
  • offering students, including undergraduates, opportunities for professional development in presenting their scholarship
  • bringing together Virginia teachers of higher education
