On April 24, 2003 The Stanford Daily reported that "as Stanford bolsters its resources in Islamic studies, augmenting extensive work already done in Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism, some students say that the University is lacking in its attention to one of the world’s major religions — Sikhism... To fill this curricular gap, this quarter Stanford is offering 'Sikhism in America,' a student-initiated course that addresses both the history of Sikhism and current issues relating to Sikhs."
