This fund is designed to respond with equally unique support while developing culturally significant ways of learning and encouraging student success.

Expanding Sikh Studies fund

The Sikh community has been essential in developing and continuing to drive multicultural values, politics and the economy — both locally and nationally. Sikh Studies at UCalgary gives students tools to apply and think through the Sikh worldview, embracing pluralism, equity, diversity and compassion for others.
