College is a tumultuous time, and often the first time that a lot of students are coming to terms with their identities and learning about social justice movements and sociopolitical ideologies. The presence of these campus support groups and collectives ease this transition and help students find like-minded peers and seniors, as well as function as safe spaces for students who are from marginalised communities.
Now, what counts as a social justice collective (SJC)?
SJCs can be either entirely student-run as well as administrative bodies.They must be concerned about the support & welfare of marginalized groups on campuses – these can be groups organized for the rights of women, Dalit Bahujan & Adivasi students, queer students, disabled students, North-eastern students, Kashmiri students, etc. They can also include campus sexual harassment complaint committees (ICCs/GSCASHs), and Women's Development Cells.They must be currently active.
You need not necessarily belong to a college to fill in details about groups of that college. However, we do request you verify that the details you include are accurate and up-to-date. We will not publicly display your name or email address – those are just so that we have a way to reach you in case we have any follow up questions. All these responses will be collected and published in a city-wise Google spreadsheet that will constantly be updated.
