About Us

The Midwest Sociological Society is a professional organization of academic and applied sociologists as well as students of the discipline. Nearly 1300 scholars, students and practicing sociologists in universities, government and business belong to the organization. Known for its accessible but rigorous annual meetings, the MSS encompasses nine states - Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Kansas, South Dakota and North Dakota. However, more than one-third of the members are from other parts of the nation and the world. The MSS has an annual operating budget of approximately $300,000 and a significant endowment. [MSS is a 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1936, and incorporated under the laws of the State of Missouri in 1961.]
