Sociology is a relatively new social science based on a strong European philosophical foundation. It is an academic discipline that takes a critical approach to the study of human relationships within society and its various institutions; thus its teachings can be applied to many fields or career paths. Due to the multiple benefits Sociology graduates gain in knowledge and critical thinking, the study of Sociology has rapidly gained popularity among undergraduate and post-graduate students. Since the inception of the Department of Sociology of the University of Colombo in 1969; the department has emerged as a centre of excellence producing graduates of outstanding stature. 


Offering both undergraduate and post-graduate degree programmes the graduates of the Department of Sociology have gone on to serve in numerous public and private sector entities both local and international. Forty years into the history of the Department, a few graduates and staff felt a need to create a platform on which both parties could come together to ensure that the ties formed during university days continue to flourish and nurture the department in future.  To this end in 2009 the Sociology Alumni Association of the University of Colombo (SAAUC) was established spearheaded by the encouragement of the incumbent Head of the Department, Prof Subhangi Herath. 

"SAAUC was established spearheaded by the encouragement of the incumbent Head of the Department, Prof Subhangi Herath"

The alumni association was formed to achieve several objectives: First to promote fellowship among its members while harnessing their professional, social and educational interests; second, to form a bridge among the academic staff, alumni, current students and post-graduate students with a view to developing the Department of Sociology; third, the association aims to develop and support regional alumni and expand their participation and support in alumni affairs. 


Since the birth of the SAAUC, its members have carried out the work entrusted to them entirely voluntarily with the sole purpose of helping to develop the department and the students past and present. To this end, over the years the members of the association have organised numerous workshops, seminars, fundraisers, awareness campaigns and other events. The diversity of the association members, who hail from different professional spheres, have helped to enrich the department at various events and helped the development of the undergraduates.  This year the SAAUC organised several webinars and charitable projects despite the limited resources available due to the prevailing situation in the country. The SAAUC is continuously driven to help the undergraduates of the department and as such more events have been lined up to take place in the future.
