  1. scientific research in its defined subject matter area;
  2. the widest possible and feasible utilization of the knowledge and skills of sociologists and the findings of scientific sociological research by
    public and private agencies in all relevant social policy issues;
  3. effective teaching of the subject matter at all levels of educational endeavor;
  4. interchange and cooperative relations among persons and organizations engaged in the scientific study of society; any and all such other acts
    as may be deemed conductive to these ends.
