SOL Info Session

5-6PM, Rhodes Conference Room

Need a little SOL in your life? Well, then we have good news for you! Service Opportunities in Leadership (SOL) is back, after a one-year hiatus. SOL has been one of HLP’s signature programs for over 20 years.

SOL is a nationally recognized, year long leadership development program, integrating community service, field research, and critical reflection within an academic framework. The SOL experience consists of three parts: a spring preparation course, a summer community-based research project, and a fall capstone seminar.

Every year, SOLsters tackle complex social issues in communities around the world, from designing a health education campaign targeting schistosomiasis in Shirati, Tanzania to working with a local soup kitchen in Anchorage, Alaska. Through SOL, students explore various efforts for social change, refine their research skills, and build dynamic relationships with their communities and peers. To hear a former SOLster describe it: “the process is exciting and the experience: unforgettable.”

Come to our information session and learn more about why students describe SOL as “the most formative and important experience they had at Duke”!
