/ Sociology and Social Work Department

Faculty and Staff

At Hope, we’ve benefitted from the disciplines of sociology and social work sharing a single department. As a student, you benefit from this arrangement just like we do — learning from faculty who share research and knowledge across these two complementary fields.

Our team members are listed alphabetically by last name. For general sociology and social work inquiries, please email eding@hope.edu or call (616) 395-7555.
