SEC was established in the year 1987 under the name “James, Vereniging van Sociologiestudenten”. On January 6 in the year 2000, the name was changed to “Sec, Sociologisch Epicentrum”.

SEC functions thanks to its Board, seven Committees, and our wonderful Sponsors, who provide us with resources and help. Would you like to collaborate with SEC? Let us know here or contact us at

The Board, with a mandate of a year, is responsible for the variety of events and trips organised, the financial status, administration, and SEC’s external relations. Read more about the Board and its tasks here.
