About Us

SikhSocs.com has been established to support university Sikh society students with resources, directory listing and online space. This is neither the creation of an umbrella organisation or body, nor is it a site that requires affiliation or membership. Any Sikh society can visit and utilise this website independently. The primary goal is to help nurture and develop university Sikh societies so that they operate with:

a long-term vision (Sikh Soc Directory);
substantive and relevant materials (Resources); and,
in collaboration with each other and the World (Your Space).

There have been Sikh students at universities in the UK since the early part of the 20th Century. Following major periods of immigration from the Punjab to the UK in the 1960s, the number of Sikh students at UK Universities rose considerably. As early as the 1970s, many of these students began to congregate irregularly to discuss Sikh issues, study Sikh history and of course come together in worship. Although there was some limited collaboration between students from different universities, it wasn’t until the late 1980s that a strategic co-ordination of inter-University Sikh societies began to take shape. Over the last 20 years, the number of students at University as a whole has grown immensely and today there are more Sikh students and societies than ever before. 

What we do

SikhSocs.com is an online space documenting this evolution and providing much needed resources to Sikh Societies up and down the country. We are not under the illusion that we can provide a one-stop shop for your society or membership, rather we hope to filter the internet for the most useful information, engaging media and inspiring ideas that you can use throughout the academic year. That being said, our workshop packs, talks overview, Sikh studies materials and Ideas section should give you plenty of food for thought!

Directory

Our Sikh Soc Directory is an A-Z listing of Universities that are home to a Sikh society. Over the last few years, we have been contacting officers from these societies and encouraging them to write an annual report about the activity that they engaged in. In hosting this information we hope that Sikh societies are able to learn year-on-year from past committees and achieve real progress across the UK. With a greater wealth of these reports, future Sikh societies will be less likely to feel as if they have to begin from scratch each year and can make the best use of those who have preceded them.
