Applications for the SOL 2014 Gateway course are now up!

Want more SOL in your life? Service Opportunities in Leadership (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 is comprised 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 the cities of Bangalore and Buenos Aires to farmworker families in Watsonville, California. Students explore various efforts for social change, refine their research skills, and build dynamic relationships with their communities and peers. The process is exciting and the experience, unforgettable.
