Message from the President
Our society works hard to raise awareness of Ukrainian culture, history and current affairs through a wide range of academic and social events, which we organise for Ukrainian students and all those who have an interest in our country. We are always looking to develop strong links and cooperate with like-minded organisations, and this has enabled us to continue to thrive as we approach our 10th anniversary in 2014.
The Society’s success would not be possible without the inspiring and hard-working individuals that help to promote it. We strongly encourage all those interested to get involved!
About the Society
The society promotes Ukrainian culture and intellectual heritage within Oxford Uiversity. The society was established by two Ukrainian students from Lviv, Eleonora Suhoviy and Roman Zaviyskyy in the winter of 2004.
