Kelsey White Soc 102 Section 2 Chapter 1 Paper 1/16/07 Institutionalized Deviance is No Good While reading through chapter one of our Social Problems book, a few major ideas popped out at me. One of those ideas was institutionalized deviance. This is basically a problem that comes about when a society and the organizations that make up the society are not working together properly to meet the needs of individuals. Institutionalized deviance occurs quite frequently in the United States, but is often times ignored. Social problems like racism in the court systems count as institutionalized deviance, but overall are not viewed as social problems because as a society, we blame the individual. Someone would say that a defendant, who happens to be colored, broke a social norm and caused a problem, so they are responsible for whatever crime committed and found guilty. This concept itself could be institutionalized deviance, because bigger organizations could be to blame for the individual acting out.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
