The SOGI Project

The Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity Project (SOGI) at the University at Albany

The Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity Project (SOGI) is an initiative of the School of Social Welfare formed in 2009.

The SOGI Project’s goals are to:

  1. Enhance the clinical skills of graduate students working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer individuals (LGBTQ) clients and their families, and
  2. Develop educational and campus-wide access for students across disciplines that are interested in LGBTQ studies.

The SOGI Project is in the early stages of developing opportunities for specialized course work and seminars that would allow MSW students to focus on LGBTQ scholarship, social service development, and research within their larger generalist degree program. Additionally, SOGI works in collaboration with The Pride Center of the Capital Region's Center Support Program offering field placement opportunities for Advanced Standing and Second Year MSW students.
