Devon Goss

Devon Goss is a sociologist specializing in the areas of race and ethnicity, the family, and sports. She completed her PhD in 2018 at the University of Connecticut in Sociology with a graduate certificate in Feminist Studies. Much of her research centers on the experiences of those who cross racial boundaries. Her co-authored book with SunAh Laybourn, Diversity in Black Greek-Letter Organizations: Breaking the Line (2018), explored non-black members of African American sororities and fraternities. Previously, she documented the impact of racial ideology on members of transracial families and the experiences of white students who attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Beyond sociology, she enjoys gymnastics, listening to podcasts, and playing with her pugs, Gigi and Bridget.
