Woody Doane is an associate dean, department chair, and professor of sociology. He teaches Studies in Social Problems; Sports and Society; Race, Ethnicity and Inequality; and Race and Ethnic Relations.
"I enjoy engaging with students and sharing my passion for sociology," Doane says. "In my opinion, it is extremely important for students to understand and think critically about the social world that we live in. My goal in class each day is to have students leave with new ideas, thoughts, and insights."
Doane's research interests include:
- Racism (U.S. and global)
- Racial discourse
- Color-blind racial ideology
