SOLES Students in Sri Lanka

During intersession, 11 students traveled to Sri Lanka as part of the course Community Models of Leadership: From Noticing to Mindful Action. This is the third time the SOLES Global Center has sent a group of students to Sri Lanka. Students were greeted by villagers upon arrival, and stayed with host families for three days. Through participation with Sarvodaya, one of the world’s largest peoples’ organizations, students experience how Gandhian thought and Buddhist philosophy influence this model of leadership and continue to shape social change in Sri Lanka
