In recent years, the Community and Urban Sociology Section has hosted mentorship sessions at the annual meeting. We will be organizing small mentoring teams—matching graduate students with junior and senior scholars around areas of interests—to meet over coffee at ASA. These are be informal sessions to talk about anything: the job market, publishing tips, careers, etc.

TRAILS, the ASA Teaching Resources and Innovation Library is an online, modular (by topic and type of teaching tool) and searchable database that reflects a major innovation in the creation and dissemination of peer-reviewed teaching resources. In 2016, TRAILS became a member benefit that all ASA members can access.
In recent years it has gone beyond syllabus sets to include a variety of different exercises, PowerPoints, and other teaching materials. This includes material for urban sociology.
