Transcript

  • 1. State of the SSAs: Past and Present
  • 2. 1980s
    Informal Sikh organizations on campus, but campus registration was rare
    Sac State, Fresno State, and in 1989 at UCB
  • 3. 1990s
    Two periods:
    1990-1994
    Membership generally those born in Punjab
    Overtly political and tied to politics of Punjab
    1996-2000
    New proliferation throughout Southern California
    UC Davis always missing
    Proliferation of bhangra competitions related to SSAs
  • 4. 2000s
    Continuation and Resolution of the contradictions of the 1990s
    2000-2005
    Proliferation of bhangra teams, growing out of SSAs.
    A new confidence, but new contradictions
    2005-2009
    Bhangra competitions are stabilizing
    Bhangra teams have separated from the SSA
  • 5. Evolution and Revolutions
    From a political agenda to a lack of an agenda
    Bhangra outgrowth, but increasingly separation
    Bhangra teams have an agenda
    What is that of the SSA?
  • 6. Strengths and Successes
    Largely interconnected network
    Statewide presence
    Purely social club is not the agenda
    Increasing student interest
    Phenomenal individuals
  • 7. Limitations and Problems
    Limited engagement with Sikhs and non-Sikhs
    CYCLICAL instead of CUMULATIVE learning
    Avenue for individual growth and exploration is limited
    SEVERELY underfunded and underutilized
    Largely a UC phenomenon – weak at JCs and CSUs
    Lack of accountability
    Lack of maturity
    Do you leave college committed to your community?
  • 8. 2010s?
    What will be the new innovations during this decade?
    What will be our contribution?
    Can we impart a revolution to this critical institution?
  • 9. Creating an Agenda
    What would it entail?
